I’m based out in Chintamani and here the temp is hovering around 36-38 deg.
We have GI shed with good ventilation from all sides. Ceiling height is about 10ft.
Our nati sheeps are in the shed frm 11am to 4pm and frm 7pm till morning 7am
this is the first summer we are facing and due to summer heat we have lost 12 sheeps in last 15 days.
Sheep stop eating and after a day or two will not be able to even stand and later die.
Three different vets visited the shed and mentioned that they are dying due to heat.
Others practicing stall-feed are facing this problems and how are you dealing with it.
We are been advised to
- paint the top of the ceiling with sun reflective paint.
- Attach thermocol sheets at the bottom of the ceiling.
- Put palm leaves or equivalent on the roof
Has anyone tried this and were the result effective??
