INNOVATION: CLIMATISED WATERBED WHICH PUMPS THE CALORIES OF THE COW AND GENERATES THE NEW ENERGY
Confined dairy cows are too hot !
Heat stress in dairy cows? What is it?
Insulated flooring, enclosed environment, continuous presence of waste, heat stress is severely understated by dairy producers worldwide.
Free stall mattresses which recirculate cooled water using a cooling system. It provides maximum laying comfort and zoothermic heat regulation in even the most severe climatic conditions and/or for dairy cattle with very high production potential.
Free stall mattresses which recirculate cooled water using a heat pump concept allowing heat recovery for on-farm applications. Cow comfort is improved as is zootechnic performance. Energy recovered from the cows can be captured to heat water, heat the environment and create an eco energy system available all year long.
COOLING & WELL-BEING
Improved blood circulation
Longer ruminating time = increased and more complete digestion of the feed’s nutrients
Cyclic laying times increased
Scientifically calculated benefits:
OHIO STATE UNIVERSITY
Agricultural Technical Institute
+ 2 kg (+ 4,4 lbs) / day over 14 weeks for cows benefitting from a cooling solution. (240 dairy cows studied)
CORNELL UNIVERSITY (NEW YORK)
Production/cow/day for cows laying on uncooled beddings: 31.2 kg / day (68.6 lbs)
Production/cow/day for cows laying on a cooling solution: 34.9 kg / day or + 3,7 kg / day (+ 8.1 lbs / day)

A study shows the proven impact of cooling pregnant cows:
- on milk production after calving
- on the preservation of the genetic capital of the fetus that will be a future producer.
