Non-wetting air cooling for Dairy barns

None-wetting air cooling


Issues in cow barns for milk production during warm weather

  • Heat stress / fatigue
  • Decrease of milk production volume due to nutritional deficiency caused by animals using blood flow for heat dissipation
  • Loss of appetite
  • Lower productivity (lower quality and quantity in milk production)

Solution: Non-wetting Air cooling systems

Cooling down the barns without causing additional stress to the cows is important for dairy farms and cattle barns. Our air cooling systems cools effectively without wetting the animals or the ground by using the evaporative cooling effect of very fine “Semi-Dry Fog®”. The cows are cooled down by reducing the surrounding air temperature with fog. It also keeps the barns very hygienic. The installation of the system is adapted to each barn style.

  • Reduction of the stress thanks to the cooling effect without wetting (temperature decrease of 5 degrees on average)
  • Restoration of milk yield and better taste (as dairy cows stay healthier)
  • Reduction of the number of cows under medical treatment (better milk quality)
  • Recovery of appetite
    Increase in revenue with an increase of  milk production

As mentioned as one of the advantages of this solution, the non-wetting air cooling will avoid additional stress on the animals. That is why it is important to understand how we measure the water droplets so that we can assure our solution doesn’t wet the animals and the barns.

Here are two articles we’ve covered about the water droplets and why the size is important:
