Belmont marketing manager Tony Magno said they will be displaying their modern tunnel ventilation system which uses fiberglass cone fans installed at one end of the house and large openings at the opposite end. The improved air quality removes excess heat, moisture, dusts, odors and harmful gases like carbon dioxide and ammonia, providing the birds with more free oxygen.
Belmont’s tunnel ventilation system lowers the temperature in the poultry house through evaporative cooling. The decrease in humidity helps keep the animals comfortable so they can eat more and grow faster. The birds are more healthy and will require less medication.
