This research analyzes the potential benefits of using a pad and fan evaporative cooling system for dairy cattle located in Florida. The objectives of this research are to evaluate the effects on cow comfort and milk production resulting from an experiment using an evaporatively cooled structure and to predict milk production benefits (if any) for evaporatively cooled dairy cows in Florida during a typical year. Study materials, methods and results are discussed.
