Potential Problems with Evaporative Cooling Pad Structures

Placing fogging pads or recirculatory pads in a false wall a couple of feet from the side of the house is gaining popularity among poultry producers. The space between the pads and the side wall of the house allows the producer easy access to both sides of the pad, making pad and curtain maintenance easier as well as minimizing the possibility of water from the pad entering the house and wetting the litter. Though for the most part these pad structures have proven very beneficial, there is a pot...ential for reduced pad cooling during hot weather if these structures are not built properly.
