Excessive Heat Load in Cattle
One pressing problem that farmers face is excessive heat load. Once the air temperature reaches 26C, cows and cattle begin the feel the effects. As it increases, or remains at high levels for a prolonged period of time, the animal begins to suffer. In extreme situations, death can occur. Without some form of shade for the animals to get out of direct sunlight, not only will the animal suffer, but milk yield and body weight will drop, and conception and calving reduce, resulting in less income for the already struggling farmer.
With careful planning, a dome shelter can provide a number of benefits for both farmer and animals. Reflecting over 50% of the sun’s rays, the canopy will provide much needed shade. The shelter can be used as a pre-milking area, or even converted to become a full milking parlour. The adaptable dome shelter is available in stock sizes, or can be designed to individual requirements. Head on over to ContainerDomes.com.au blog page to know more.http://bit.ly/2jhIbdm
