More and more poultry producers are building broiler houses that can be power-ventilated year round. The typical house has side wall inlets for use during cold or moderate weather and tunnel ventilation for warmer weather. The reason for this trend is to gain more control over the environment (i.e, temperature, air quality, light) and therefore, bird performance and health.
