    Why does Core Cool Systems focus on maintaining core body temperature? Because cows love consistency, and when they experience it, they reward us with incredible results. Variable speed set to temperature and humidity in the barn means airspeed is seamlessly adjusted as temperatures fluctuate, keeping cows consistently comfortable and cool.
    Are you looking to upgrade your ventilation and cooling system? Call 1-844-GET-KUHL to visit with an expert today and see if Core Cool Systems is a good fit for your operation that will bring value to your herd and your bottom line.

    When your delivery system for important feed ingredients fails, do you know what you need to replace it with? It is important that we make these substitutions thoughtfully with the cow's well-being, milk production support, and economics in mind.

    The unsung heroes of our food supply are immigrants - these folks often milk & feed the cows everyday. In a tight labor market agriculture always struggles to find people- the work is dirty, stinky, around the clock, and everyday. It's not easy to find people willing, able, and passionate about this type of work. Employment in agriculture is often a first step to joining our society for many who are new to the USA - make immigration easier, especially for those working in Agriculture!

    Core Cool Systems focuses on maintaining core body temperature rather than cooling ambient air temperature. Why? Because focusing on the cow and keeping her comfortable and cool is essential.

    One of the reasons why Core Cool Systems focuses on keeping cows comfortable and cool in their stalls. Maintaining core body temperature regardless of soaring and fluctuating temperatures gives your cows the best environment to succeed and can significantly impact their ability to maintain components. This, in turn, affects the farm's profitability.

    Unfortunately, many of the dairy-beef crosses today are simply "black Holsteins," with similar frame characteristics to full-blood dairy animals. "If you're going to do that, you might as well just produce Holstein steers, because at least there is a specific market for them," says one industry expert. "The tall, black crossbreds don't fit well into any production or marketing system."

    Do you stress eat? I do. Do you know who doesn't? Your COWS. If they are hot, they don't eat. This affects not only your lactating cows but your dry cows too.
    Cooling dry cows can significantly impact their next lactation and their calf's future lactations.

    I was reading an article about the impact of summer heat stress on fall reproduction, and it finished with this sentence,
    "An old maxim about dairy farming still holds true. Cows perform well in winter and spring, but struggle in summer and fall."
    What do you think? Is that true? Do we just accept that cows struggle in the summer and fall?

    Understanding the degradability and undegradability of fiber is essential for predicting cow response, but it does not consider the physical aspects of fiber. The physical characteristics of fiber, like particle size and density, can influence not only rumen fermentation but also milkfat production and animal health.
