Providing your cows with fresh air is vital for cow comfort and health. In this video, you can see how the cows clearly prefer to lie down underneath the ventilation system. But of course, there are many other measures you can take to keep it cool for your cows...

Tube ventilation seems to work very nicely. However focus in this barn should also be on the sunlight comming down throuhg the row of "windows" in the roof. I seems that there at intense sunlight, and then also potentially high temperature, at the head space in the stalls to the left. As the sun moves, the sunlight would also warm up the stalls for some hours. Rows of "windows" in the roof should no be placed along but across the length of the stall-rows.
