The importance of ventilation for livestock buildings
Housing conditions can have a significant impact on livestock welfare, growth rates, feed intake and disease. Managing ventilation with effective inlet and outlet positioning and uniform air flow through the building will manage temperatures and humidity, reduce concentrations of Ammonia (NH3), Carbon Dioxide (CO2), remove odour and the build up of pathogens.
Inadequate ventilation causing poor air quality, high temperatures and humidity is the major reason for mastitis, pneumonia and digital dermatitis in dairy cows. Optimise conditions with our range of cow and calf ventilation systems.
