Much has changed in a dairy barn in Styria (Austria) with approx. 60 dairy cows since the installation of our VETSMARTTUBES ventilation systems. Here’s a comparison:
System with 4 ventilation tubes:
Our high-precision 3D simulation allows us to do an inch-perfect calculation of the air jets and the airflow for the respective conditions:
The system was installed early in April. Ever since, one can observe longer lying times, a constant feed intake and no building of groups anymore at warm temperatures.
Before and after pictures are the best way to show these results. Click here to see the pictures.
The system also includes an automatic temperature control module, which allows the tubes to work even at temperatures under 10 °C (at lower power). The calculations were specifically adapted to this. Moreover, the system works with highly efficient EC fans for a lower noise level and an optimised power consumption. The system’s total maximum power consumption is 3.2 kW.
We can’t wait to see the first comparative values of the milk yield.
As soon as the hot days of the year are over, we will give an update on the animals’ behaviour under our cooling system.
