The microclimate of poultry houses for raising broilers on mineral litter



The microclimate of poultry houses for raising broilers on mineral litter



Veterinariya, Moscow, USSR (5): 29-30



A series of parallel experiments was conducted to compare litter composed of shavings, vermiculite or a shavings-vermiculite mixture. The vermiculite had been expanded by heat treatment; its gas-absorptive properties had been improved chemically. Microclimatic parameters were better in houses having vermiculite or shavings/vermiculite litter. Ammonia levels were 2.4-2.5 times greater on av. in control (shavings only) houses and RH and CO2 levels were also significantly higher.
