Signs of Heat Stress in Animals

Signs of Heat Stress in Animals
Even with proper cooling, shade, and water available, owners should still be aware of the signs of heat stress and monitor animals during high temperature days. The following are signs to watch for and actions to take to avoid loss due to heat stress and heat stroke in animals:

STAGE 1:
• Elevated Breathing Rate
• Restlessness
• Increased Time Standing
STAGE 2:
• Elevated Breathing Rate
• Restlessness
• Slight Drooling
• Animals may group together
• Increased Time Standing
STAGE 3:
• Elevated Breathing Rate
• Restlessness
• Slight Drooling or Foaming
• Animals may group together
• Increased Time Standing
STAGE 4:
• Elevated Breathing Rate
• Open Mouth Breathing
• Restlessness
• Slight Drooling or Foaming
• Most Animals Standing in Pen
STAGE 5:
• Open Mouth Breathing and Tongue Protruding
• Most Animals Standing in Pen, Restless
STAGE 6:
• Open Mouth Breathing and Tongue Protruding
• Labored Breathing, Respiration Rate May Decrease
• Cattle Push from Flanks while Breathing
• Head Down
• Individual Animals May Isolate from Herd

Actions for Avoiding Heat Stress
ACTION:
• Ventilate area with Port-A-Cool® units or KÜÜL® pads cooling systems
• Provide Portable or Permanent shaded areas near feeding areas
• Utilize all actions from Stage 1
• Provide plenty of cool, clean water
• If temp is over 18˚C consider initiation of measures to prevent heat stress
• A rule of thumb for initiating heat stress management is provided by the THI or
Temperature Humidity Index as follows:
– Livestock alert is 24-25 ˚C
– Livestock danger is 26-28 ˚C
– Livestock emergency is 29+ ˚C
If animals show signs of heat stress in stage 5 or 6, all a veteranarian or seek medical help.
Actions are listed for consideration only. Please consult a vet or other professional for specific instructions on the breed of animal owned.
Professional Recommendations
The University of Arkansas Division of Agriculture recommends portable shaded areas with fans along with clean, cool water to help avoid heat stress in dairy cows.
They specifically recommend temperature reduction in holding pens using fans, circulating air and to be sure the area is properly ventilated.
The Department of Agriculture and Biosystems Engineering recommends the following to protect livestock and poultry from heat strees and heat stroke during summer:
• Increase ventilation rate and turn on cooling fans where applicable.
• Use evaporative cooling pads and systems where applicable (they state that moving air accelerates the cooling process in animals.)
• Monitor animals for signs of heat stress.
Port-A-Cool® evaporative cooling units are perfect for achieving all these recommendations using natural evaporative cooling.

How to reduce heat stress industrial warehouse


Many factories, garages and industrial warehouses face heat problems. The high temperatures in combination of hot roofs and open doors cause sometimes heat stress under the employees. The biggest group of clients of Port-A-Cool belong to these type of companies, not knowing that there exists a powerfull, ecological and foremost economical cooling solution being able to resolve their heat problems.

To give an example: An industrial warehouse of 1.500m2 has open doors due to the traffic of in- and outcoming goods but only has some specific workspots inside their warehouse. The Port-A-Cool is ideal for such a company. The units are installation-free and mobile so they can be used where the people work. Due to the high level of ventilation the evaporative cooler is able to reduce the temperature significantly. (The evaporative cooler works better with more open doors and windows and even works outside).

For the company it is an economical solution (no need for installation) and often it is not even necessary to cool the whole warehouse but just the workplaces. The Port-A-Cool units are the perfect spot coolers and therefor very suitable for this type of cooling.

What is evaporative cooling?

What is evaporative cooling?
The Egyptians, Romans and Greeks where the first ones using pads (at that time wet mats). Nowadays the heart of an evaporative cooling system is the pad where the water evaporates and the air passing through the pads is cooled.
 
Evaporative cooling pads, like Küül-pads are manufactured of fluted cellulose sheets that are glued together. This material is chemically impregnated with special compounds to prevent rot and ensure a long service life. 

A special water distribution system spreads water over the surface of the pad, ensuring an uniform supply of water to keep the entire air contact surface thoroughly wetted. Fans create a negative pressure, causing air to be drawn through the pads. Evaporation results from contact between air and water. A control system operates the water pump and the fan distributes the cool air.

The PORT-A-COOL® Portable evaporative cooler
PORT-A-COOL®´s operating costs are much lower than those of a central air conditioner. The initial equipment cost is also lower than air conditioners. Along with lower operating costs and simple installation, evaporative cooling can be a perfect, ozone-friendly alternative to traditional air conditioning.
 
It operates at a 10th of the cost of conventional airconditioning and is capable of cooling hundreds of square meters 7 degrees or more, saving PORT-A-COOL® customers hundreds, or even thousands euros per season!
Looking for more cooling? Try combining Port-A-Cool units
Since PORT-A-COOL® is a state of the art, high efficiency, portable evaporative cooling system, its high efficiency cooling media coupled with a unique housing design, allows PORT-A-COOL® to cool effectively in very high relative humidity conditions. Since, as its name implies, it is portable, PORT-A-COOL® can be easily moved around shops, factories, back yards, sporting events and hundreds of other areas for maximum effectiveness, comfort and increased productivity.

PORT-A-COOL® uses a specially designed ridged cooling media, contained in a properly designed housing to insure effective direction of the air over the water saturated media at the proper air velocity.
