Swine facilities must be ventilated to control heat, moisture, dust, odors, pathogenic organisms and irritating, noxious or toxic gases. Our goal is to provide healthful conditions for animals and personnel and to control deterioriation of structural components and equipment. Given the widely varying climatic conditions of the central and northern plains states there is no system capable of fully satisfying all desirable aspects of a ventilation system. Consequetly, producers must select the system which best fits their management abilities and goals with the most acceptable set of compromises.
