In a previous article I published here, I presented the different opinions that exist about the causes of global warming in recent decades, and I also brought to the attention of readers the opinion of researchers who deny that human activity in the last 150 years is the main cause for it. According to these researchers, global warming is part of a million-year-old cyclical process, in which the w ...

Summer heat stress has been considered in these days as one of the greatest causes for losses in the world dairy sector. Italian Breeders Association (A.I.A.), adopted the Summer to Winter ratio (S:W) index, a heat stress assessment tool based on the ratio between summer (July – September) and winter (January – March) farm performances. S:W ratio has been developed in Israel and adopte ...

Adult lactating cows receive more attention when it comes to the negative effects of heat stress, as compared to heifers. This is because lactating cows need to dissipate more heat, running out of milk production and feed consumption and digestion to support it. The losses, caused by exposing adult cows to heat stress conditions include drop in milk production and composition, fertility, health an ...

Hello Tariq, it depends in your capabilities to provide cows good feeding, health and management conditions. if so, i propose Holstein cows. But, in case you don't, then you can go for cosses (in different rate according to management dergree), between Holstein and local Bos indicus cattale.

Pascal SOREL Hello Paskal, thanks for uour comment, i am familiar with your product The question is economic The cooling system i presented is relatively of low cost and was shown in many cases as highly cost effective. In many studies, the wind and water system almost "close the gap" of summer drop in performance (Summer to winter ratio of 0.98 in good cooling farms), therefore, your proposed sy ...
