Shed environment (humidity, temperature) control is difficult


It controls the environmental condition of the shed


It allows to check the microclimate of the farm and helps the animals to overcome unscathed the periods characterized by high temperature. It allows to move uniformly a higher air flow rate. The ventilation system can be managed in automatic mode to regulate the functioning of the entire system based on air temperature and humidity index (THI index) detected by appropriate probes.

How to implement:

Air ventilation is set up to start when air humidity and temperature conditions overcome certain limits.

Expected benefits:

  • It improves the environmental condition of the barn
  • The system enables to ameliorate animal welfare conditions and prevent heat stress.
  • It prevents performance losses during lactation and reproduction phases
