The increasing adoption of antibiotic-free (ABF) and no-antibiotics-ever (NAE) rearing practices requires broiler chicken growers to rethink their animal husbandry and house design. Properly managing litter moisture helps create a successful, profitable environment for the animals. Using circulation fans aids in maintaining the proper litter moisture levels needed for a healthy ABF or NAE flock. Dr. Brian Fairchild and Mike Czarick of the University of Georgia will explain the role ventilation plays in proper litter management.
