Plan now for this workshop on Oct. 31 offered through the Dairyland Initiative from the University of Wisconsin. In this workshop, Dr. Ken Nordlund will present on designing systems to deliver appropriate volumes of fresh air to calves without creating drafts.
Problems with fluttering tubes, uneven distribution of air along the tube, and failure to inflate will be reviewed, along with practical ideas for tube location and construction materials.
Participants will receive and learn to use the Dairyland Initiative's Supplemental Positive Pressure Ventilation Tube Calculator to create specifications for example barns and troubleshoot existing systems.
The event will be held at the F.K. Bemis Conference Center, De Pere, Wis.
