Abstract

In today’s animal housing, ventilation systems and humidity controllers are the normal ways of regulating temperature. Our agriculture ancestors had their stone barns which survive to this day and are also effective in providing coolness in hot weather. The cows are very comfortable in these environments, more so than us humans in our too-hot homes.
