Cattle care in cold weather
Cattle are comfortable at anywhere between 40 and 70 degrees, which means winter can be very hard on them. Provide a shelter for them if you can, but if not make sure they have everything they need to be left out in the elements.
Water should be constantly available and properly heated. Cows aren't fans of exceptionally cold water. Cattle will also need extra feed during the winter to maintain their body weight. Without additional feed, cattle will use up their body fat supply and you'll end up with very skinny cows come spring.
