Great question! You can expect some ambient air cooling, BUT its just a pleasant side effect that is not the focus of the CowKühlerZ system.
What CowkuhlerZ does is maintain Core Body Temperature. The fine, timed mist acts as imitation sweat when the temperature rises, and air cooling alone is no longer sufficient. The ultra-fine droplets float through the spiralling airflow. As they land on the cow, her body heat causes them to evaporate. The evaporation causes a chilling effect that cools the blood flowing just below the surface of her skin. This chilled blood is pumped towards her core and effectively and efficiently cools her CBT.
CowKuhlerZ works to prevent the effects of heat stress by maintaining core body temperature. The “mist” is timed, so even though the KuhlerZ nozzles are mounted directly above the stalls, the stalls stay dry. The fine droplets evaporate quickly in the focused airstream, so the moisture doesn’t accumulate, bedding stays dry, and the cows stay dry.

What do our customers say?
“We found the CowKuhlerZ, we installed them, and that was the solution, immediately the heat stress pretty much went away. We did not see production go down. We aren’t making wet floors; we aren’t making wet feed. You can put fans and water over stalls; you can put them over feed bunks, you can really get a full bang for your buck by having water everywhere. You’ll find usually that CowKuhlerZ will pay themselves off in one to three years. This little fan will blow up to 70’ in a tunnel vent barn. It’s a simple controller, you don’t have labour, you don’t have to flip the fans on and off, it’s automated, it runs, and you walk away from it. If you can put a system in that controls itself, that, for the most part, is maintenance-free, that’s always a good system.” US Farmer
"The CowKühlerZ system was expensive initially to install, but without a doubt, hands-down, it is definitely worth every penny. It paid for itself in no time. The cows are much happier and healthier. They're lying down chewing their cuds, the stalls don’t get wet and there are no drops in production." Canadian Farmer
"The system was installed in the fresh cows barn and right after the install in July we averaged 80 - 103°F, the cows feed intake went up by 3kg/day/cow and continued on that level. We know that with higher feed intake comes higher production and less metabolic disorders, less mastitis, less displaced abomasum cases, lower negative energy balance at the start of lactationand better reproduction." Portugal Farmer
Cooling and maintaining core body temperature works to prevent the effects of heat stress. Creating an imitation sweat using a ultra-fine timed mist is both energy and water effiecient.
