During the winter months many poultry producers have a significant problem with cold air leaking into their houses from along the bottom of their side wall curtains. This is especially true for producers with double hemmed side wall curtains (conduit at both the top and bottom of the curtain). A number of producers have found that this leakage can be eliminated, at relatively little expense, by simply sealing the bottom of their curtains with 1" X 2" wooden strips.
