The feed consumption and the amount of time spent lying down will decrease, for example. The direct consequence of this is decreased milk production, with a risk of issues with hoof health and fertility in the long run. Royal de Boer carries a complete range of side curtain systems and cooling fans for climate control in barns in order to regulate the temperature and guarantee sufficient ventilation.
Climate control in your barn
Cows are true athletes, and in order to perform, they need a proper barn climate. Temperatures that are too high or low can enormously impact the cow.
Climate control for the well-being of the cow
Curtain systems for climate control in barns
The unique Lumitherm inflatable curtain consists of air compartments that form a breathable, insulating and storm-proof wall to ensure perfect climate control in the barn. The system comes with a weather-detection system by default. This system automatically opens the side wall based on the temperature, wind force and rain.
RdB curtain systems
The Royal de Boer top-Down curtain opens downwards. Depending on the height, the curtain rolls up at the bottom or in the middle. The heavy, 600-gram sheets are available in various colours, and come in opaque or translucent varieties. The famous Lock drive is a patented, durable system that has proven its worth again and again over the years. This electric system can be operated manually, semi automatically or fully automatically, which is ideal for optimum climate control in your barn.
