The trend in swine housing toward multiple farrowing systems and confinement growing and finishing units has brought about a need for an increased amount of environmental control. Close control of temperature, relative humidity, fresh air and sanitation has become a matter of prime importance. Of these factors, the control of temperature, relative humidity and fresh air thro ugh proper insulation and ventilation require the most precise planning and design in swine housing systems. Ventilation is required to remove the moisture produced by the animals as well as to control temperature and odors. A properly planned ventilation system requires an adequately insulated building, good air distribution and some form of supplemental heat to maintain inside temperatures during cold weather.
