Air exchange rates (AERs) were calculated from 2 full sized broiler houses. The first broiler house was a Louisiana stall (natural ventilation) and the second a mechanically ventilated stall. The following methods were tested in the naturally ventilated livestock house. Under hot summer conditions the CO2, heat and moisture mass balance models were assessed. Because of the hot temperatures and high AERs, mass balance model results were corrected, reasonable AER estimates were obtained. In the… CONTINUE READING
