Optimal ventilation is important for the health and productivity of dairy cattle. Cows produce heat, moisture, manure and urine, which adds moisture and gasses like ammonia to the environment.
It is important to remove foul air and replace it with fresh air to avoid respiratory problems. When the weather is hot it is important reduce heat stress to keep the cattle comfortable.
All ventilation systems require three basic components:
- An inlet system to allow fresh air into a building.
- An exhaust system to remove the stale air from the building
- A control system to provide the correct amount of air entering and leaving the building.
