Descripción de la medida

Reduced heat stress through additional sprinklers

Comentarios sobre la sostenibilidad

During heat periods the animals suffer from heat stress. Ventilators help the cows to cool down,to increase the animal comfort, to keep them healthy and to keep the high milk production. Some investments are needed and the ventilators need additional energy and water. This is preferable with renewable energy (GHG would become neutral). Advice is probably needed to implement this measure.
