Optimization of environmental conditions in a positive pressure ventilated pig maternity unit



Building and livestock management

Aim / objectives:
The main objective of the project is to develop a strategy for ventilation, cooling and heating using positive pressure (room regulation system), which integrates the measurement of different types of probes (temperature, humidity, CO2, NH3 and static pressure), making it possible to control the atmosphere in breeding rooms in pig farms in order to optimize the comfort and well-being of the animals.
