Soaking System

Product Description:
When the temperature-humidity index is above 72°, livestock will experience heat stress. During heat stress, respiration rates increase, while milk production and reproduction decrease. One option to control heat stress is to install a soaker system over the feed line, parlor (enter and exit lanes), and in the holding pen. J&D Manufacturing’s Soaking System has been designed to provide your livestock with dependable relief from the damaging effects of heat stress. Our Soaking System provides all the necessary components needed to install and automate the system. Combined with our recirculation fan line, you can achieve unsurpassed cooling benefits.

Key Features:

  • Ideal for high humidity environments
  • Utilizes existing tunnel and cross ventilation systems with increased returns
  • Completely automated with the use of a thermostat and cycle timer in conjunction with an electric solenoid water valve
  • Helps maintain high levels of feed intake during heat stress periods, minimizing loss in production during the hottest summer months
  • Soak the cow, not the feed in the feed line with 180º nozzle assemblies
  • In a typical installation, systems run on 16 minute cycles. Soaking occurs for 4 minutes on and 12 minutes off with recirculation fans running the entire 16 minute cycle to maximize the cooling effect and to dry livestock for the next soaking cycle
  • Soaked cows returning to well ventilated stalls lengthens the cooling effect and it’s benefits

Applications:

  • Dairy

FAQs:

There are many cooling systems that are available including soaking, low pressure misting, high pressure fogging, evaporative cool cell systems, and portable cooling devices.
A soaking system is a cost effective way to drench your animals. The soaking system is most effective when used with recirculation fans.
Low pressure misting uses standard water pressure of 60 PSI and creates large water droplets in the 50-60 micron size. You need a good filter and good water quality along with an air exchange strategy. Low pressure misting systems receive a water evaporation rate in the 98% range.
High pressure fogging is a very cost effective solution to gain a cooling effect of 10° – 25° off the ambient temperature. The water droplets are between 15 and 25 microns with 100% evaporation. A good filter and water quality is a must along with an air exchange strategy. This is our most effective cooling method.
