Providing fresh air in areas within the Dairy/Calf/Beef barns can be crucial to the well being of the animals. Specifically in calf barns, where the top two concerns are ventilation and respiratory disease.
When building a barn today, most farmers choose to build a barn with plastic (PVC or PE) curtain sidewalls as opposed to a solid wall. The swine, turkey, dairy/beef are contained to a barn and may require natural ventilation. Building a barn with curtain sidewalls allows for this. The natural ventilation not only removes heat and moisture from the building but also odors and gasses. Utilizing the Agri-Barrier livestock curtain system can allow the farmer to regulate the temperature and moisture in the barn by raising or lowering the curtain as conditions require.
