  • A key tool in the battle of heat stress, soaker lines are designed to provide additional cooling in barns and parlors.
  • Soaking quickly cools cows which encourages milk production, fertility, dry matter intake, and water consumption
  • Soaking also reduces heat stress and its impact on your herd’s health

VES-Artex soaker lines use low-pressure, large-droplet water soakers, which allows water to penetrate a cow’s hair and wet her back. The water is then exposed to high airflow that evaporates the water and cools your cows, this system performs best when paired with a VES-Artex recirculation fan.
