Core Cool Systems was named so because that is what it does. The focus is on keeping the cow cool rather than the ambient air. By manipulating the environment around her, the system can maintain her core body temperature. Providing her with the consistency she needs to reach and maintain her full potential.

Most areas of North America experience an average of 125 days a year with a temperature variance of 20° or more. These days wreak havoc on cow performance. Add to that another 111 days a year where the THI is 70 or greater, causing heat stress issues. These two add up to 236 days, over two-thirds of the year, when cattle are experiencing temperature stress.

We know how disheartening it can be to watch your cows' performance suffer. Even worse, you have no control over the weather… until NOW. The Core Cool system gives you the power to control the environment in your barn and make EVERY day feel like a COOL day.

I hear you asking HOW?

The Core Cool System continuously monitors the cows' environment, adjusts the components and automatically provides the best type of cooling.

It begins with monitoring the Temperature Humidity Index 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

Then according to the THI it…

To achieve…

Cooling when and where you want it.

Cooling in the stalls encourages more laying time, improving milk production and rumination. It also contributes to improved summer conception rates and decreased fall lameness.

Cooling along the feed alley promotes frequent trips to the bunk throughout the day, improving summer feed consumption and decreasing the risk of SLUG feeding and ruminal acidosis.

Intense evaporative cooling and powerful, high-velocity air provide relief in the holding area, where cattle can suffer heat stress nearly 365 days a year. The "best bang for your buck," it impacts every lactating cow in the herd. Resulting in improvements to production, reproduction and overall cow health and well-being.

Target cooling for areas like robots, cross-overs, tight quarters and calving pens can also significantly positively affect the number of robot visits, transitioning cows through areas and cooling trouble spots.

The Core Cool System consists of

  1. Air Speed and Water Application Controllers
  2. Variable speed fans set to THI
  3. Quad Tip Nozzles, for evaporative cooling

Core Cool Systems

1. Temperature and Humidity, are monitored 24/7 to cover your cows' comfort.

At the heart of the Core Cool System are three controllers that cover specific functions and adjust the system to the cows' needs. They are fully automated, easy to set up and alter and offer everyday peace of mind.

  • Fan Speed Controller switches the Core Cool Units on and off when needed and sets the variable speed of the fans depending on the ambient temperature and your cows' needs.
  • Water Application Controller monitors temperature and humidity continuously in the barn and provides intelligent water cooling only when needed to maintain core body temperature. Adjusting application rates to accommodate high humidity. When humidity levels reach extreme, the unit stops water application.
  • Holding Area Controller (HAC) automatically manages the fan speed, nozzles and sprinklers in the holding area during milking times. The HAC will shut the fans and nozzles off between milking times, saving you water and energy.

2. Low-volume, low-pressure water cooling.

All the cooling of a high-volume system uses a fraction of the water.

The ultra-fine timed mist is applied according to the barn's temperature and humidity (THI). The THI is monitored continuously so that water application amounts and duration are decreased or stopped in high humidity circumstances. When the temperature is high but the humidity low, the water application may be increased to compensate for the higher evaporation rate. All this happens automatically according to the parameters set by the barn manager or producer to meet their barn style and geographic location.

The timed, ultra-fine droplet creates an imitation sweat that lands on the cows' coat, then evaporates because of airspeed and body heat. This evaporation causes a chilling effect that cools the blood flowing just below the surface of her skin. This cooled blood is pumped towards her core and is how Core Cool Systems maintains core body temperature and keeps cows feeling comfortable and cool in their thermal comfort zone.

Ambient air cooling is a pleasant side effect of the Core Cool System but not its primary focus. Several degrees of ambient air cooling will benefit the people working in the barn.

Ever had to decide to turn the fan on or leave them off over your morning cup of coffee? Have you had an afternoon milking on a day that was supposed to be cool only to have your milk temp alarms going off on every second cow? Does your current System let you down on those days when the weatherman doesn't get the forecast right? The Core Cool System is the solution you have been looking for. We know life is busy, and the crystal ball doesn't always work. That's why we created a system that is continuously monitoring the temperature and humidity in your barn and adjusts the complete System accordingly. Your cows are kept consistently cool, and you can worry about the other million things you need to think about.

Do your components drop over the summer months? The Core Cool Nozzles are the cream. Core Cool Systems is a low-pressure system that uses a fraction of the water of a high-pressure system. A timed ultra-fine mist creates an "imitation sweat" As these tiny particles land on the cow's coat, they evaporate from both airspeed and body heat. This evaporation creates a chemical reaction that causes a chilling effect on the blood flowing just below the surface of her skin. This cooled blood is pumped to her core and maintains her core body temperature. Even on the warmest days, she feels comfortable and cool. Maximizing performance and cattle health. Components are directly impacted by heat stress, you don’t have to keep losing your cream. The Core Cool nozzles really are the cream, YOUR cream.

Consistently cool cows maintain their milk components which means more cream for you!

Here’s what a customer from Howick QC has to say about his experiences with the Core Cool System:

“Since installing the system in June 2018, the production stays at the same level no matter what, and the cows are eating all the time. They are no longer heat-stressed, so their dry matter intake remains high; they continue to ruminate and continue to produce milk. Interestingly, the butterfat has gone up 0.2%. The only difference in their management is the system, so they attribute the increase in butterfat percentage to the system.

They have a temperature sensor on their milk machines, which gives the real-time temperature of the milk as it enters the pipeline and passes through the system. Before the system, they would get alerts that the milk temperature was higher than 39°C, often throughout the summer. Since installing the system, the milk stays at 37°C; the alarms have not gone off in the two years since the system installation.

This is interesting because milk is the same temperature as the cows' blood and body temperature. If her core body temperature remains around 37°C, which is ideal, her milk temperature should be about 37°C. This proves that the system is working to maintain cows' core body temperature within their thermal neutral comfort zone, maximizing performance and cow comfort.”
