Pigs will only be able to grow at their max potential if they are in good health, and an important component of having good health is having proper air quality and airflow in your barns. In today’s episode, I talk with Dr. Brett Ramirez about proper airflow, the importance of air quality in new and old barns, and other things to consider when designing a new swine facility.

“Ventilation is important and can’t be ignored. It is something that works 24/7 and if it fails it’s pretty catastrophic if you aren’t prepared.” – Dr. Brett Ramirez
