AQUACLIM - An eco-friendly solution using cooling water beds for dairy cows

The solution aims to increase the milk yield and the well-being of the cows and to recover the calories they release when they are lying down. By improving the milk yield by 3%, the solution makes it possible to reduce the dairy herd by 3% for the same production. Air pollution by ammonia and CO2 by livestock is thus reduced by 3%. The solution also recovers the calories emitted by the cow in the barn (kwh). AQUACLIM is a cooling water bed for dairy cows with climatized water pouch able to cool the cow and collect the zoothermal energy.
