Ventilation workshop for swine producers

Mar 14, 2013

WASHINGTON, Iowa — “Managing Your Unseen Employee: The Ventilation System,” a workshop for swine producers, is set for Wednesday at the National Guard Armory in Washington, Iowa.

Hands-on demonstrations are conducted using an enclosed mobile ventilation facility equipped with variable speed fans, inlets, a curtain, controllers and monitoring tools and more. The classroom sessions include the basics of ventilation systems, effective temperature requirements, troubleshooting tools, techniques and other ventilation issues.

Due to assistance from funds provided by Smithfield and administered through the Iowa Pork Industry Center at Iowa State University, workshops are currently available at no cost to participants. The workshop runs from 9:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m., with a free lunch provided.

The ventilation trailer is a multi-state project with funding from Pork Checkoff and development by the land grant universities of Iowa State, Minnesota, Nebraska and South Dakota State.

To register, contact the Washington County Extension Office at 319-653-4811 or email tmiller@iastate.edu.
