Ventilation for Livestock and Poultry Facilities - Publication 833
goal of every livestock and poultry producer is to provide an optimum
environment in the barn to maximize the animals’; well being
and productivity. Good ventilation is a key component of this goal.
This manual was prepared to assist producers and ventilation designers
in the design, installation and maintenance of ventilation systems.
It explains the basic design principles, operational requirements
and maintenance of ventilation equipment in livestock and poultry
barns in Ontario. Examples are provided throughout the book to demonstrate
how the various principles and components are interconnected in
actual barn situations.
The book also provides guidelines to contractors and producers, who install and/or operate ventilation systems in livestock and poultry barns. Although it may serve as a useful guide to engineers, it was not prepared as a basic engineering manual on ventilation systems. No attempt has been made to supply all basic theory and information. Consult additional reference material for a comprehensive discussion on the ventilation of livestock and poultry facilities.
