Historic methods and humble beginnings revolutionize the complexity of a major problem with a simple idea. One day out of the blue, fortune smiled when a Dutch dairy farmer visited an American Arabian horse ranch. Klaas Talsma, owner of Talsma Dairy in Hico, Texas took a rare day off and visited a horse facility near Weatherford, Texas.

All warm blooded creatures must maintain consistent body temperature to keep proper metabolic processes.
