The fully-automated cooling system for any cow traffic lane. Cool Sense™ is temperature and motion activated to provide a cool shower to cows in transit. The system is triggered only when the dual motion sensors detect an animal is present and the air temperature is above your specified set point.
The Cool Sense™ motion cooling system is an effective and efficient way of keeping dairy cattle cool when the temperature rises. Cooling is achieved by automatically showering dairy cows with a coarse droplet shower. After a cow moves through the showering area, the water begins evaporating from the skin and pulls heat away from the animal, thus cooling it. Showering cows immediately after milking helps reduce heat stress, which in turn increases their feed and water consumption and milk production.
Edstrom offers all the major components needed to economically set up an intermittent showering system on your dairy – including the controller, shower nozzles, electric valves, filters, and pressure reducers.
There are two types of showers on a Cool Sense system, unidirectional shower and bidirectional showering. Unidirectional showering consists of one manifold that disperses water in one direction, while bidirectional showering has two manifolds that disperse water in opposite directions.
