Louvered Ventilation System

The Ultima Louvre, in many ways, is the ultimate ventilation system, since it allows many options in climate control. The unique design allows maximum ventilation with no ingress of rain.

The Louvre’s framework is securely fixed to the top timber and the concrete panel or wall at the bottom. Each system is modular and expandable, individual sections are 2190mm (86inches) wide.

The system is easily retro fitted to existing barns

A comfortable cow is a productive cow.

Is there any place hotter and more stifling than a barn filled with dairy cows or other livestock on a hot summers day? This can have an extreme and costly adverse effect on production and efficiency of all exposed to it, to say nothing of accelerating spoilage, and the constant annoyance of flying insects.

The fact is, a cool cow is a productive cow. Repeated studies have shown that HVLS fans significantly cool dairy cows through the evaporative cooling process.  Studies show for every 2° C a cow is cooled, milk production can increase by 1 litre per cow.  These additional milk profits coupled with the energy savings, enable AirVolution HVLS fans from Megafan Technologies to pay for themselves in a short period of time, and generate significant recurring additional profits to dairy operations after pay back.

AirVolution HVLS livestock barn fans are the ideal solution for cooling and ventilating these large open environments. They also provide an ideal means to distribute warm air (reverse is a standard feature) from overhead heat systems during the colder months. Even barns with large always-open doors or an open-shed type of construction can reap the benefits of our efficient and cost effective technology.

Here’s why:

Moving air breaks up the moisture-saturated boundary layer surrounding the body, accelerating the cooling effect.  This cooling effect can be increased dramatically if used in conjunction with misting or wetting of the cows’ backs.
During the Winter Season, AirVolution HVLS technology de-stratifies uneven temperatures that occur at each level throughout the barn forcing unused heated air from the ceiling down to the floor where it can have a positive impact on cows. This heat differential can be in excess of 8° C from ceiling to floor, enabling significant cost savings and comfort when thermostat levels are reduced.  This can also reduce the potential for freezing ice on the floor.
One AirVolution dairy barn fan consumes about the same electricity as one high-speed alley fan while moving over 12 times the air.
One AirVolution fan costs about 8p an hour to operate.

The average air speed in a barn supplied with MacroAir fans is greater than the same barn supplied with small high-speed fans.
Cows do not bunch up, air moves over and under the herd, regardless of their position in the barn.
Flying insects stay away. Birds also react to the large, slow moving airfoil blades and stay out!
Any water on the ground evaporates quickly reducing the threat of mastitis and the nuisance of flies not to mention the cooling effect of the evaporation.
The floor jet produced by these dairy barn and livestock fans cannot be generated by conventional high-speed fans designed to blow air over the top of the cows.

Cowcare Roto Scratch Brush

The Cowcare Roto Scratch brush has been developed to improve health, welfare & comfort throughout the herd.  The brush starts to rotate on contact with the animal and features a smooth pendulum action.

Benefits-

  • Improved blood circulation.
  • Healthier skin, free from dirt and parasites.
  • Reduced stress levels
  • Increased herd performance

Our cow brush features a direct drive gearbox, coupling the brush to the motor.  The unique bearing technology prevents the strains and stresses endured by the brush to transfer to the gears and motor resulting in increased life of the unit.

The onboard controls start the brush on demand, and stops 15 seconds after the cow is finished.  The brush is easily power washed and is suitable for mounting out doors.

Features-

  • Quick & easy installed.
  • Wall or post mounting.
  • Increased health & welfare.
  • Increased herd performance.
  • Low energy consumption.
  • Automatic on/off operation.
  • Designed for 50-60 cows

Technical-

  • 20 rpm rotating speed
  • 120watt motor, 230v 50hz supply.
