SwineCast 1036, The Squeal - On Managing Ventilation For Maximum Performance

SwineCast 1036 Show Notes:
  • This episode by PIC shares important management best practices on managing ventilation for maximum performance. We’ve assembled for this timely topic Lance Barton (Belstra Milling Director of Wean to Finish and Genetic Services), Fernando Gomez (PIC Wean to Finish Specialist), and Nat Stas (PIC Wean to Finish Tech Service Team member).
  • Key take aways: 1) Periodic ventilation monitoring and maintenance is a must, 2) Train people on the specific equipment, troubleshooting skills, and the role ventilation plays in managing animal health, and 3) Develop a mindset that ventilation is not just airflow or temperature or equipment, but a combination of all these factors.
