    Abstract

    Climate change causes the ambient temperature getting high. This condition will finally affect the physiology and performance of livestock. The aims of this study were to determine: 1) The average of respiratory rate and body temperature of adult male and female Madura breeds cow with fat and medium body condition between in the morning and at noon, and 2) The heat tolerance of male and female Madura breeds cow with fat and medium body condition based on Rhoad and Benezra coefficient that had been modified. This study used survey method, while the data were collected by using multi stage random sampling. There were 120 Madura breeds cow used in this study. Parameters observed were respiratory rate, body temperature, and heat tolerance. Results of this study showed that the average of respiratory rate of Madura breeds cow on fat and medium males was 31.07±3.17 and 30.27±2.87 breaths/minute, and on fat and medium females was 27.87±3.05 and 27.80±3.07 breaths/minute. The average of body temperature of Madura breeds cow on fat and medium males was 38.62±0.19oC and 38.58 ± 0.18oC, on fat and medium females was 38.57±0.23oC and 38.56±0.19oC. The average of heat tolerance of Madura breeds cow according to Rhoad and Benezra coefficient on fat males was 94.90±1.38 and 2.64±0.16, on medium males was 94.30±1.26 and 2.62±0.20, on fat females was 95.50±1.83 and 2.42±0.15, and on medium females was 96.22±1.28 and 2.38±0.20. It was concluded that the heat tolerance of adult Madura breeds cow was still high. Keywords — Respiratory rate, body temperature, heat tolerance, Madura breeds cow, Rhoad and Benezra coefficient.
