A VES Success Story
A Modern Farm for a Modern Farmer
Fetzer Farms wanted to modernize their dairy facilities, and sought VES’s help to do it. Prior to working with VES, Fetzer Farms had an outdated climate system. This fan system led to a wide variation in the internal environment, leading to extensive heat stress among their animals.
With the heat stress came a decrease in milk production, an unpredictable reproductive schedule, a high somatic cell count, and an increase in infections and need for costly medication. Eight years later with 5 VES systems now on their farm, Fetzer Farms have continually chosen VES as their strategic cow comfort partner.

Years Running and Counting
After installing the VES fan products, Fetzer Farms became the first power ventilated cross-vent barn in the area. By controlling the environment, Fetzer Farms reduced the impact of Mother Nature’s variation on their farm, mitigating heat stress on even the warmest of summer days. This created a more comfortable environment for the cows and employees alike.
Fetzer Farms saw immediate and substantial changes after installing their VES environmental products like exhaust fans. Thanks in part to higher air quality, the cows, and the staff, were able to breathe easy. The cows suffered fewer infections and respiratory issues, meaning less medication was needed. Somatic cell counts dropped drastically. And because heat stress was eased, fertility increased. Most astonishingly, milk production increased by 10 pounds per cow per day.
Because the cows on Fetzer Farms were more comfortable, they were more productive and healthy. How will VES change your farm?
