8 cooling systems for livestock

As a rule, most livestock do a pretty good job keeping themselves warm in the winter, but when summer temperatures soar, they may need some help keeping cool. These products can help.
  • No hose needed

    This heavy-duty portable evaporative cooler from Advanced Misting Systems can be connected to a hose, but if one isn't available, the internal reservoir supplies enough water for 8 hours of misting.

  • Mist cools the air

    The Aqua Breeze cooling system uses atomized water droplets to flash cool hot air in a barn or stable. The adjustable, oscillating fan is outfitted with a high-pressure, stainless steel misting ring. It uses a standard garden hose connection.

  • Cool on the go

    Ideal for taking to horse shows or fairs, the Cool Draft 360 features a 3-speed, 20" fan with a 5-nozzle stainless steel misting ring, mounted on a 10-gallon Igloo cooler. This set-up will provide cool mist for 5 to 6 hours until the cooler needs refilled.
