Livestock shading systems

As experts in agrivoltaics, we have developed a livestock shading system that reduces the effects of climate change on grasslands and livestock through rotating shade. Our system also guarantees a long-term income to owners and farm operators.

An adaptable farming tool

Our system is compatible with cattle, sheep and goat farming. The characteristics of our agrivoltaic system can be adjusted to better suit the farmer’s needs and the type of livestock.
The system has a minimal footprint and thus no impact on the surface area used for livestock farming.

Facilities for livestock farming

From the start of the project, TSE sets up facilities tailored to livestock farming: fencing, watering points, feeding racks or troughs if necessary, holding pens, etc.
Our system was also designed to ensure animal safety and is adapted to rotational grazing, with a comfortable height underneath the panels for the animals, and contributes to an efficient use of the grassland.

Agronomic benefits
of rotating shade

Lower summer
Our agricultural shading system protects plants from extreme heat and excess sunlight in the summer. The reduced heat stress on plants boosts fertilisation and grain filling.
evapotranspiration/Water savings
Our agrivoltaic system maintains a higher level of humidity on the crops underneath, reducing water stress on dry-farmed crops and saving considerable costs in irrigation on irrigated plots.
temperature ranges
Our agricultural canopy reduces the risk of destructive early spring frosts during the growing phase for winter crops (straw cereals, oilseeds, legumes, etc.) by keeping nighttime temperatures a few degrees higher when the panels are left in a horizontal position.
forage yields
For partial shade-tolerant crops, protection against various abiotic stresses during key phenological stages can improve grain or forage productivity.
animal welfare
The shade from the agricultural canopy offers better grazing conditions for livestock (cattle, sheep, etc.). The structure provides shelter in areas spread out over the grazing area; the shade reduces animals’ heat stress and improves the availability of grazing pastures. The canopy also maintains and can improve zootechnical performance (the quality and quantity of milk, for instance).
