Information about Livestock and Animal Cooling
We all know how physically taxing the heat and humidity of summer can be, especially in the hot southern states. For businesses in the agricultural sector, it is critically important to consider how to go about combating the heat in a safe and cost effective manner. If you are in the business of raising livestock and you are concerned about the comfort and well being of your animals, our livestock mist cooling fans can provide your animals with the relief they deserve. As a responsible farmer, it is important to recognize that animals have a very low tolerance for heat stress.
Livestock cooling is a critical component of any animal husbandry operation. While 80 degrees might be uncomfortable for humans, cattle cannot handle such temperatures and are at risk of heat stroke and death. In conditions such as this, it is important to monitor your animals for signs of heat exhaustion. Heavy panting and an open mouth are sure signs of heat stress in cattle. In fact, cattle are more sensitive to increases in relative humidity than chickens or pigs. Our livestock cooling systems provide the animal and livestock cooling solution recommended by the Agricultural and Bio systems Engineering Department at Iowa State University; one of America's leading research centers in animal science.
At some point, you are likely going to encounter the need to transport your animals. For this reason, we have added a number of livestock portable misting fans to our inventory of products.
