Cooling Fans for your Dairy Farm
This is essential. Pakistan has hot summers. Very hot summers. The milk producing capacity of your cows is directly – yes, directly – related to the temperature of the environment.
Some say that after 26 degree Celsius, each unit increase in temperature has a significantly negative effect on the milking volume of the cow. In plain English, this means that we need to keep the temperature of the environment as low as we can economically and practically manage.
Fans do the job. I know some people use the normal ceiling or pedestal fans for this job, and that is better than having no fans. But if you can afford it, you should go for the industrial fans.
The Fan from Bilal Engineering costs around 11,000 PKR. Yes, that is expensive. But then again, it is not expensive… I only needed one to cover the whole width of my farm (See the video).
Note: A lot of people may say that do not spend this much money on such ‘luxuries’ etc. Please, do not listen to them. This is essential. You are spending upwards of 120,000 rupees per animal, and once you read a herd size of 10, that’s more than a million rupees worth of asset. And you are going to hold back on 11,000 rupees to cut costs? Please do not fall in to that trap… setting up a cooling system is part of your infrastructure and is very much necessary.
i stumbled upon your blog accidently, while i was doing my research on setting up a dairy farm. is subscribed and have been reading your posts. i find your posts extremely helpful, interesting and innovative. especisally this once since i was also looking for a cooling system for a dairy shed.
Thank you Haroon. Glad I could help…

Very good we need awareness about this field,I am living in England and working as Security Manager if I will get chance I will do dairy business,thanks
Thanks trillion for sharing the idea. If you would be kind enough to give the address/contact of bilal engineering, it would be a great help. Stay blessed dear bro
Their website, thankfully, is up and working. Check them out here http://var/web/site/public_html.bilaleng.com/contact_us.html
I remember talking to one of the directors, Ahmed Imran ( You can see him in the video here http://youtu.be/BY2rBtVrB1Y?t=33s ) 🙂
Thanks loads, just talked to them. I am going for the same one you bought.
What if i go for a mist mobile unit as the one in the demo, it costs 35000????????? advice please
I DID NOT buy the mobile unit. In fact, I did not even buy the mister unit. I only bought the fan.
But now I keep thinking that I should have bought the mister with the fan.
About the mobile unit: I knew I’d attach the fan onto the pole so I didn’t consider the mobile unit. Your case may be different. 🙂
hmmm, I’m thinking a static mist unit, ive asked the guys at bilial engineering for the same if possible. He promised to get back to me. Let’s see. I think let’s go for the “karwa ghoont” for once and buy a mist fan. Anyways,lots of time to plan and implement being jan. Thanks again for the support.
you are most welcome Adil. 🙂
Let me/us know how it goes.
Ive just ordered a static 30 inch mist fan sys, custom made. going to cost me 30000. 🙂
mashAllah. Mubaraaakaaan janaab! 🙂
Hope all goes well for you! 🙂 I might as well see how your mister performs and then get that too IF you approve, Adil 🙂
it will suffice two sheds of 20 meters each built on 90 degrees to each other
aoa, thanks a lot for you kind help, this is SADQA -E-JARIA.

Dear Momekh – Firstly a big fan of your posts; May Allah bless you for spreading awareness, Ameen!
Brother – we are in the process of setting up small-scale (but later scalable) dairy farm near Sargodha Pakistan. But so far have been struggling to locate reliable and proven sources for buying Sahiwal-Friesian Cross Cows. Your guidance in this regard will be much appreciated.
Did you get any help with that? Thank you Sheraz for the comment and the appreciation.
