Navigating changing ventilation requirements

With the British Pig and Poultry Fair underway at the Birmingham NEC, John Lack, business development manager at Hydor has discussed how the business can help farmers navigate changing ventilation requirements to maintain healthy animals.

With a background in engineering and over 30 years’ experience in the ventilation industry, John has helped pig and poultry farmers across the country create the perfect ventilation system to combat a variety of issues. This includes keeping air-borne diseases away from livestock and ensuring that the environment is comfortable during extreme temperature conditions.

“At this year’s British Pig and Poultry Fair, we’re hoping to help farmers navigate the ever-changing rules that they must abide by when building new structures to house pigs and poultry. For example, to combat the negative health impacts of ammonia on chickens, newly built sheds in areas such as Wales are now required to include ammonia reduction equipment like air scrubbing systems to preclean the dissipated air.

“Alongside this, farmers wishing to meet the Red Tractor standard and have its logo included on their meat products must ensure that their sheds are well lit and ventilated. At the show, our team will be on hand to help farmers gain clarity on all the necessary standards associated with pig and poultry farming.

“As well as ensuring newly built sheds are keeping the animals housed within happy and healthy, our experts here at Hydor can help retrofit pre-existing buildings so that an up-to-date ventilation system is in place. Removing an older product and finding a new one that fits in its place can seem like a daunting task, but we are on hand to help create a solution that works with the structure to help keep air movement efficient and cost efficient.

“Happy and healthy animals produce high-quality products and air ventilation is a key component to ensuring that. While attending this year’s British Pig and Poultry Fair, if you have any questions about animal ventilation then do visit myself and our team on stand 12–362. With our products manufactured within the UK, we can offer short lead times and a swift solution as the summer months approach as well as avoid the delays from importing from European countries.”

Alongside Hydor’s attendance at the British Pig and Poultry Fair, other agricultural brands owned by Elta Group will be present, including All Agri, FarmTech Services and Bowden & Knights.
