WHY INDUSTRIAL AGRICULTURAL FANS ARE A NECESSITY FOR BARNS
Farms face unique challenges when it comes to maintaining optimal conditions for animal welfare and productivity. By providing a constant flow of air, industrial agricultural fans prevent several conditions, such as
Heat stress: As temperatures rise, livestock experience heat stress, a condition that occurs when animals generate and absorb more heat than they can dissipate through sweating, breathing or air circulation. Heat stress results in increased respiration rates, higher body temperatures and sweating. Stressed cows also tend to spend more time standing, which is detrimental to milk production - dairy cows produce the best milk when lying down.
Poor air quality: Dust, gases and odours all contribute to poor air quality, which can be a major problem in livestock and farm environments. These airborne contaminants cause respiratory problems and create an unhealthy environment for livestock and farm workers.
Stagnant air: Poor ventilation and temperature fluctuations in livestock buildings create hot and cold spots. Stagnant air causes problems with animal bedding, resulting in moisture and microbial build-up that can affect animal welfare.
