A properly designed environmental control system is a high priority in today’s poultry houses. The system must maintain the correct temperature, humidity, and air velocity while minimizing noxious gases to create optimum conditions and results. Keep in mind, the optimal settings for these parameters will change throughout a bird’s life. Read More . . .
It’s time to start thinking about and preparing for cold weather ventilation. Even though minimum / transition ventilation is important year round, it is even more important to get things right during cold weather to assure the welfare of the chicken and control of litter conditions. It is not as Read More . . .
A circulation fan system is used not only to break up temperature stratification and create more uniform conditions from one end of a poultry house to the other – but just as importantly – stir fans are used to increase the level of air movement over the litter to aid Read More . . .
Ideal broiler flock performance is greatly affected by correct ventilation management. It is important to note not all poultry sidewall inlets are created equal – some poultry sidewall inlets are better at directing air across the ceiling than others. As the poultry industry is evolving, house design and construction are Read More . . .
High Broiler Flock Performance Depends Predominantly on Accuracy and Efficiency of Ventilation System. During minimum ventilation periods, producers are concerned about moisture, litter condition, keeping the birds warm, and air quality. The more control producers have over air quality, air temperature, and energy usage the more control they will have Read More . . .
