Pig Farm Ventilation
Pig farm ventilation is a system composed of intake and exhaust fans that ensure proper temperature and airflow are maintained for the stock.
Ventilation brings in fresh air and extracts or dilutes harmful dusts, gases, and undesirable odors, as well as airborne organisms and moisture from the pigs.
Pig farm ventilation systems are the most effective means of maintaining steady humidity and temperature as well as air speed levels for livestock husbandry farm houses.
Why Ventilation System is Important to Pig Farms?
When confining pigs to a barn to maintain optimal health and safety standards, one of the most important considerations for the animals is the proper ventilation of their habitat. While natural ventilation is typically used in more moderate climates, one thing to keep in mind is how ventilation can greatly impact your livestock yield.
It is well known that pigs are a more suitable livestock for colder climates, as their abundant fat stores help keep them warm through colder temperatures. However, what most operators do not consider is the impact consistently elevated temperatures can have on yield. As pigs get warmer, they tend to reduce their consumption to help cope with the additional stress brought on by heat. Because of this, operators typically begin to see smaller pigs as a result. By keeping pigs comfortable through mechanical air flow mediums, such as with pig farm ventilation systems made up of intake,circulation, and exhaust fans, operators can begin to keep happier pigs, which leads to higher yields.
How to Design Pig Farm Ventilation System?
There are generally 3 ways to properly ventilate the pig breeding farm and increase production:
- Natural ventilation:
Natural ventilation system in a pig farm normally means modified monoslope roof and open sidewalls or large windows in the sidewalls. It relies on the heat from the pigs to keep the farm house warm in winter, and the dry wind in the weather to remove the humidity and odors from the barn.
- Mechanical ventilation
Mechanical ventilation system normally involves a series of fans, such as air intake fans, negative pressure exhaust fans, and tunnel circulation fans. Negative pressure exhaust fans forces air away from the pig farm, tunnel circulation fans enhances the air moving speed, and it can work with the negative pressure exhaust fans to fast extract out the polluted and heated air from the pig barn.
- Evaporation Curtain walls
Evporation curtain walls normally work together with negative pressure exhaust fans as the fan and pad cooling system. It has been most effective yet cost-saving way to bring down the temperature inside the farm house. In this system, the evaporative cellulose cooling pad is installed in one sidewall or endwall of the farm house, and the exhaust fans to be installed on the opposite side to the cooling pads. This curtain wall and exhaust fan system can bring down the temperature in the farm house by 4~8 ℃, and increase the humidity by around 30%, while the effectiveness of this evaporatiion curtain wall and fan system varies from region to region.
