Microclimate modification to improve milk production in hot arid climates



Microclimate modification to improve milk production in hot arid climates



Agricultural engineering Proceedings of the 11th international congress on agricultural engineering: 1433-1440



Evaporatively cooled shades reduce the level of stress during rest periods; shades and/or misters at the feed mangers can be used to encourage cattle to eat at the hottest part of the day; sprinklers can be used as the cattle leave the milking area.
