Hog Stir Fans Recirculate Air to Create
for Pigs and Workers
Stir Fans or Circulating Fans are important in your effort to reduce costs and improve the environment inside your hog buildings during summer and winter months. Because warm air rises and cool air falls, there is often a 5 to 8 degree Fahrenheit difference between the ceiling and floor temperatures. One way to help minimize this temperature difference is to install stir fans. The main purpose of air circulation is to cool and control the climate to reduce heat stress on your animals and keep production at the maximum level. Swine Recirculation fans (stir fans) keep your hog building dry by reducing the collection of moisture and condensation, and also to help dispel gasses and odors. The recycling of heat will reduce fuel cost and create a healthy environment for your pigs and workers.
