Biological climate in calf housing. Part 2. The controlled treatment of outside air with heat and moisture to obtain biological stall air

Biological climate in calf housing. Part 2. The controlled treatment of outside air with heat and moisture to obtain biological stall air

Grundlagen der Landtechnik 34(5): 185-191

The required characteristics of supply air are discussed together with microclimate requirements for animal health and hygiene. The results of measurements of calf heat and moisture generation are reported and their dependence on daily activities and feeding systems examined.
