A Connected Shirt For Cows Helps Fight The Heat In Japan

The specially designed shirt helps cattle cool down in summer and keep producing milk

Japanese apparel company Gunze has created a shirt for cows that help them fight the heat. The wearable, named Ushibull, is made from a “feel-cool” fabric often used in sportswear and covers the cow’s neck and shoulders, resembling an oversized t-shirt. It uses a sensor that monitors the wetness of the fabric, and douses the cows in water when the fabric becomes too dry. Water vaporizes and lowers the animal’s hide temperature. According to Japan Times, tests run by Gunze and its partner, the Kyoto Prefectural Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries Technology Center, show that the garments effectively minimizes drops in milk production, which declines around 10 percent in the summer.
