Animal Cooling Basics

Video for the Animal Agriculture in a Changing Climate project describes the different methods for cooling livestock animals on the farm. Animal cooling is more important than ever as climate change
in the American midwest results in more frequent heat waves and higher humidity levels. The video explains the importance of understanding the thermoneutral zones of different species, and the different ways that animals dissipate heat from their bodies. The cooling methods include the most common and cost-effective methods such as shade, ventilation, air velocity, and direct sprinkling, as well as some alternative and experimental methods such as geothermal cooling systems and air conditioning Farmers of the future will need to invest in cooling strategies that provide enough benefits to justify the costs to the operation.
