Automation and management
All agricultural entrepreneurs want to be in full control of all the processes in their animal houses by means of a made-to-measure total solution, one which is either completely or partially automated. The animals are naturally the key focus and should therefore be kept under optimum growing and living conditions.
Central air quality measurements provide an indication of the overall conditions in an animal house and this may lead to a choice for central extraction. Air scrubbers are always combined with central extraction. Today there is a worldwide trend away from pig houses with direct extraction and towards pig houses with central extraction.
Optimal Bio Security ventilation concept
PRRS or blue ear disease is a common virus disease in pigs. Pig farmers who want to achieve PRRS-free pig production will therefore have to be very disciplined as some 90% of all infections are transmitted between pigs. Breeding and AI organisations should therefore?keep the virus and any other pathogens, at bay. Overpressure ventilation combined with air filtering and good internal biosecurity is a good means to ensure this.
Although the agricultural industry works with many different suppliers, many livestock farmers have no idea whether the quality of the products and resources supplied to their farm are actually the best options for their farm. Nor do they have any idea as to what is going on at other farms. Due to this lack of information, many decisions are still based on past experience, intuition and gut feeling. Livestock farmers inspect their animal houses to see if any animals have failed to grow sufficiently or are sick. They take the necessary measures based on what they see. Instinctively, and using the figures for their farm, they know if their animals have done well, but they do not know how their farm is doing compared to other farms. But you don’t have to be doing badly to make improvements. Collecting data and sharing it easily is a means to help them optimise their farm results. Any non-conformities are easily brought to light by means of economic and animal-related figures. Sharing data within the value chain enables the quality of incoming products to be checked and controlled
Equal pressure ventilation
There is growing demand for sustainable pig farming all over the world. Animal welfare has the highest priority.
Changed sentiments among consumers as well as market demand have led to changes in how pigs are housed and farmed. In combination with an abundance of laws, this has resulted in new, innovative housing systems.
These sustainable systems call for a new, efficient ventilation concept: the equal pressure ventilation concept.
