Baby Cows Feeling Cosy Thanks to Underfloor Heating
Underfloor heating is now commonplace in many homes, and householders well know the cosy benefits that it can bring. But there are now forms of underfloor heating that animals other than a few lucky family pets can benefit from ? as the recent case of a rather unusual dairy farm demonstrates. The newly built farm in England utilises underfloor heating powered by electricity in order to keep calves and young cows warm in the winter or severe storms.
Dairy Calf & Heifer Association strongly recommends a warm and dry environment for calving, and as underfloor heating becomes more affordable and more portable, it is a simple and effective solution. Some zoos around the world are also installing underfloor heating to reduce carbon footprints and keep their more warmth-loving animals toasty in the winter. It just goes to show that underfloor heating is proving a hit with more than just humans.
