How much do you spend to cool your milk? On average, a dairy farmer spends about $75 a month on milk cooling. By installing a milk precooler, you can save 20 percent to 30 percent—that's $15 to $20 every month.
A precooler will cool milk with well water before it reaches the bulk tank to provide quick cooling and ensure the quality of the milk you produce. This precooled milk reduces the demand on your bulk tank compressor—and that saves you money.
