If more than 10% of your calves has to be treated for respiratory problems, then something is wrong with the ventilation of the barn. Very often it seems that there is sufficient fresh air in the barn when you walk through it, but the problem is only visible when the air quality is checked close to the ground (where the calves are lying). The lower 50-80 cm, measured from the ground, the air is mostly stationary, which means polluted air with a high concentration of bacteria.
With the Cowhouse Positive Pressure Ventilation fresh air from outside comes inside the barn with a flexible tube, which is mounted on a wall ventilator. The tube has a special pattern of perforations which divides the air equally in the barn. The silent ventilator works continuously, so that the complete air content, including the blind spots, will be refreshed four times an hour.
The perforation pattern, the diameter of the tube and the ventilator are being calculated based on the barn situation and will be tailor made produced.
- Supply of fresh air
- Both the hole pattern, the diameter of the hose and the fan are calculated based on the barn situation and will be tailor-made
- A special hole pattern in this hose distributes the air evenly throughout the house
