Ventilation Farming Note

Poor dairy building ventilation can have dramatic consequences on milk production. Research suggests 50% of buildings designed for livestock are not suited to the housed animal. A correctly designed dairy cow building should be cool in summer and warm in winter.

This Farming Note covers:

  • Seven key points to consider for livestock ventilation
  • Identifying signs of poor ventilation
  • Principles of ventilation
  • Dairy building design
  • Six methods of improving natural ventilation
  • Ventilation calculator

Issued August 2013.
