Senninger Irrigation

Dairy

Senninger sprinklers are also used by dairy producers for cattle cooling and udder washing. Wobbling sprinklers are the most popular choice for dairy producers due to their unique off-center rotary design and their ability to uniformly wet the entire herd.

Cattle Cooling

Cattle Cooling

Reducing heat stress is a major concern for dairy producers. As temperatures rise in a holding pen, intermittently sprinkling cows’ backs with water, and allowing the water to evaporate, increases cows’ natural ability to regulate their temperature.

This is done through a process known as evaporative cooling. A combination of sprinklers and fans running at 5 mph can help cows lower their body temperatures in as little as 30 minutes.

Udder Washing

Udder Washing

Some farmers hold cows in a sprinkler pen for pre-washing before they enter the milking parlor. Cows in sprinkler pens are sprayed with water for less than 5 minutes and then left to dry before being prepped for milking.

Pre-washing is particularly helpful for maximizing the effectiveness of the final wash and sanitation.
