In order to create an optimal stable climate throughout the year, ventilation is required. This can be done by combining natural ventilation with fans. Supplemental ventilation is an important step in preventing heat stress.
Problem: Heat stress in beef cattle
A cow experiences heat stress from a temperature of 20°C. This is easily five months a year. In the event of heat stress the cow is unable to get rid of sufficient heat. The cow will eat less, ruminate less and lie down less. In addition, resistance and fertility decrease and growth is slower. There is also a negative impact on the unborn calf. All this has serious consequences for animal welfare and profitability.
Solution: Combination: Natural ventilation and fans
Heat stress can be avoided by combining natural ventilation with fans. Especially when there is no wind and the temperatures are higher, it is necessary to provide additional ventilation to complete the ventilation story.
The combination of natural ventilation and fans not only ensures an optimally ventilated house during a heat wave, but also during the rest of the summer months, which benefits the health of the animals.
Advantages of our fans
- No frequency control, so no interference with other electronic installations
- Energy-efficient, so that the payback time can be greatly reduced
- Low maintenance thanks to clever design and direct drive
- Relatively quiet
We have joined forces with Abbi-Aerotech and offer their innovative and energy efficient fans.
