It pays to cool dry cows.

At $16 per hundredweight, a 500-plus cow dairy stands to lose upward of $285,000 in lost milk during the first 280 days of lactation when dry cows are not cooled.

This decrease in profit is based on research that shows a non-cooled dry cow produces 11 pounds less milk per day during the first 40 weeks of her next lactation.
