Ventilation and cooling in dairy farms
Conversation with Marcelo Wasser
Ventilation and cooling system to improve animal welfare and productivity
Today we talk about ventilation and cooling in the barn, a much discussed topic in our sector, through this short interview we will show you the point of view of an expert in Brazil who talks about us touching various points of reflection.
Marcelo Wasser, dairy expert and farm manager.
Let’s talk about animal welfare: Do you think ventilation and cooling are two must-haves for improving livestock performance and improving farm productivity and efficiency?
In a modern dairy farm, is a proper ventilation strategy strictly required to improve comfort, milk production during the summer months, and the general barn environment?
The constant air movement improves overall air quality, removes unpleasant barn odors, disperses ammonia gas, and gives the herd a cool breeze. Can we say that comfortable cows are productive cows?
Based on your experience, could you say that CMP fans are an effective and inexpensive way to reduce heat stress and keep your herd healthy and productive?
