Out of ordinary: Cool Cows Produce More Milk
Cows placed in air-conditioned conditions have been shown to produce 10% more milk. It is also claimed that cows suffer from heat stress at temperatures as low as 22°C. This puts particular pressure on cows raised in hot places such as Israel, but also during increasingly hot European summers, enhancing the need for air-conditioning equipment. The cooling can also counter reduced birth trends in the summer as cool cows tend to produce more offspring.
