VentTubes – Positive Pressure Tube Ventilation
A breath of fresh air for livestock buildings
In modern agriculture the farmer needs to constantly balance optimisation of investments, sustainability and animal welfare.
Livestock housing plays a prominent role in animal welfare and for that reason Galebreaker is constantly innovating and developing its ventilation products to help the farmer to improve the environment within livestock buildings and so maintain a healthy herd. Optimising ventilation and air exchange within livestock buildings is of the utmost importance.
Methods of Ventilating Cattle Buildings
Air exchange and ventilation can be improved by using one or a combination of the following methods:
- Natural ventilation – using side wall inlets in combination with a roof outlet.
- Mechanical ventilation – using fans to create air movements around the animals.
However for the most vulnerable group of animals, i.e. calves, it can be a challenge to provide enough constant airflow using natural and/or mechanical negative ventilation methods alone. For calves we need additional ventilation in the building to achieve optimum year-round housing conditions. To help us to do that we have introduced the Galebreaker VentTube system.
