This project evaluates the effectiveness of conductive cooling technology to reduce energy consumption while alleviating heat stress in lactating dairy cows. The evaluation takes place on a dairy farm located in California’s San Joaquin Valley. Heat stress and increased heat load experienced by lactating dairy cattle during the summer months causes decreased milk production, loss of reproductive efficiency, and other physiological and behavioral changes.
