Keep Animals Cool with a High-Pressure Misting System
Spring is right around the corner, so you know what that means: things are warming up! How are you and your business preparing to beat the heat this year?
If your business operates outdoors, the warmer weather could be a dangerous factor in keeping your employees cool and productive. However, as temperatures begin to rise, keep in mind that humans aren’t the only thing that get overheated in warm weather.
If you’re an animal caretaker, your business depends on the comfort of the animals you care for since it can have adverse effects on their health. Horses for instance are better at keeping themselves warm than cooling themselves off. Cows may begin producing less milk and other mammals may become more irritable in extreme weather conditions.
The bottom line is that noticing the effects of the heat, and working to minimize these effects will help both you and your animals remain happy and healthy. The general rule of thumb when it comes to the heat is this: If it’s too hot for people, it’s too hot for animals.
When exposed to abnormally high temperatures animals can show the following symptoms:
- Change in feeding patterns
- Panting, or rapid shallow breathing
- Increased respiration rates
- Reduced feed intake and increased water intake
- Negative energy balance
To help avoid the onset of these symptoms, it’s important to create a comfortable and cool environment for your animals. The best way to do this is through the use of a high-pressure misting system.
