With evolving zootechnical performance and high-density housing, farm animals are facing ever-greater challenges, which make them sensitive to the slightest disturbance. Controlling animals’ environment is a priority to ensure their health and welfare.
Nowadays, producers are more and more concerned about this matter and it is only natural to see them applying specific strategies to keep a healthy environment to avoid any sanitary problems related to moisture, pathogens and ammonia.
Moisture is, in fact, considered to be the agent that paves the way to other key factors that may put the health and welfare of animals at risk, since it frequently leads to an increase of bacterial pressure and ammonia production, being also a source of discomfort for animals. Reducing moisture represents a major challenge for increasing environmental safety.
