Did you know that CowühlerZ offers core body temperature cooling using a fraction of the water that soaker system use and has better cooling results?
Water use on dairies increases in the summer because cows drink more water, and dairy farmers use soaker systems and high-volume sprinkler systems to keep cows cool. Research has demonstrated that "low-flow" KühlerZ nozzles use nearly 75% less water than soaker systems, and the same or better level of cooling is achieved with the CowKuhlerZ system. The low-flow KühlerZ nozzles conserve valuable natural resources without sacrificing cow comfort on-farm.
"Results of this trial indicate that the low-pressure mister system is as effective as the high-pressure mister system for providing supplemental evaporative cooling based on body temperature and respiration rate of lactating dairy cows housed in a free-stall barn. However, the low-pressure mister system used 43% less water than the high-pressure mister system, which is important for reducing total water usage."
"Water use on dairies increases in the summer because cows drink more water, and dairy farmers use water sprinklers to keep cows cool. This new research demonstrated that a "low-flow" sprinkler system that uses nearly 75% less water-cooled cows just as well as a traditional high-volume system. Low-flow sprinklers conserve valuable natural resources without sacrificing cow comfort on-farm," said Matt Lucy, PhD, editor-in-chief, Journal of Dairy Science, and professor of animal science, University of Missouri, USA.
How is that possible, you ask? The KühlerZ nozzle creates a fine mist that acts like an "imitation sweat" this ultra-fine droplet lands on the cows' coat. As the droplet evaporates, it creates a chilling effect that cools the blood flowing close to the surface. This cooled blood works to maintain her CBT within the thermal comfort zone. The controllers monitor the THI (temperature humidity index) in the barn and adjust the timed fine mist's duration to match the environmental conditions. These settings are easily programmed to match your geographical location, so the system is effective worldwide.
