Intelligent Soaker

Sustainable and efficient soaking for your farm

Product Overview

VES-Artex Intelligent Soakers provide an innovative solution to heat stress. Unlike conventional soakers, the Intelligent Soaker soaks an animal if it is present, leading to efficient water use and a priority on environmental sustainability. Soaking can be automated based on temperature to ensure your cows get the right amount of cooling in whatever weather they’re in.

The Intelligent Soaker was developed to assist dairy farms to be environmentally sustainable while mitigating heat stress and maximizing animal productivity. The Intelligent Soaker helps dairies be responsible and steward resources wisely. Compared to traditional on/off timer soaking systems, the Intelligent Soaker soaks an animal if it is present, showing ~70% water savings on test sites.
