Cattle Cooling

Innovative and Precise Cooling
for the Hardworking Dairy Cow

Edstrom cooling systems keep your herd comfortable, healthy, and productive – even through the hottest months of the year. They’re ideal for:

  • Holding pens
  • Feed lines
  • Exit lanes
  • Breezeways
  • Robotic barns

The Edstrom Controllers, which serve as the heart of the system, are recognized as the best in the industry and are the only cooling product on the market to feature Smart Mode technology.


cattcooling-overviewSigns of heat stress in dairy cattle are noticeable as soon as temperatures near the 70°F mark. Cows start eating less. Milk production falls. Reproductive problems crop up. Overall animal health is jeopardized. Shade and ventilation are simply not enough.


The best solution for conquering heat stress is periodic wetting of the cow’s hide with a coarse droplet shower. High-capacity Edstrom shower nozzles produce a coarse droplet spray which penetrates the hair and wets the cow to the hide. Air movement from fans helps evaporate the water, pulling heat from the animal. And the entire system is run by the Edstrom Controller, an intelligent, customizable device that makes cattle cooling practically effortless.

  • Controls amount of water used by adjusting shower times automatically to accommodate for increases and decreases in temperature – eliminates programming guesswork.
  • Easy and economical to install and operate, giving you a quick return on investment.
  • User-programmable controller creates customized cooling programs.
  • Two-Year warranty on all controllers.

Edstrom offers all the major components needed to economically set up an intermittent showering system on your dairy – including the controller, shower nozzles, electric valves, filters, and pressure reducers.

Cool Sense™ – Motion Cooling System

The fully-automated cooling system for any cow traffic lane. Cool Sense™ is temperature and motion activated to provide a cool shower to cows in transit. The system is triggered only when the dual motion sensors detect an animal is present and the air temperature is above your specified set point.






Smart Mode – Exactly the right amount of cooling at any temperature:

Unique to the market, Smart Mode provides innovative, infinite-stage cooling by increasing shower frequency automatically as temperatures rise. This self-activating technology adjusts the length of time between shower cycles in correspondence to fluctuations in temperature. Smart Mode’s fine-tuning capabilities enable you to stay ahead of increasing heat stress conditions when temperatures rise, and help you conserve water when temperatures fall.


The Edstrom controller monitors the temperature and regulates the shower cycles within the cooling system. It features intuitive controls with flexible programming options to deliver precise cooling. Designed for single or multiple zone cooling, these easy-to-program controllers can be set to operate either in two-stage mode or Smart Mode.
