EMPLOYEE VENTILATION TRAINING

Iowa State University's Brett
Ramirez offers insight to
properly training employees
in order to ensure ventilation
systems are working to their full
potential. Courtesy Iowa State University
"Temperature is by no means
the silver bullet, but it can start
the process and help direct
future inquiries," he said.
He suggested that employees
use one of their passes through
the house to only pay attention
to ventilation equipment. This
will help establish a baseline and
keep it at the forefront.
"There is so much going on in
a house and so many things do,
ventilation tends to blend in and
is only noticeable when there is a
major problem," he said.
Employees should be
looking for issues that can be
easily solved.

Individuals learn how to collect fan airflow data in an egg laying
house during a training session. Brett Ramirez
"Cleanliness, for example,
can solve a lot of issues," he said.
"Keep fans, shutters, light traps,
inlets, heaters, etc., clean. This
pays dividends in terms of efficiency and durability. Performing
routine maintenance falls into
this same category. Doing the
little things adds up, (greasing
bearings, tightening belts, etc.)
because if this is neglected,
equipment failures happen."

Training employees for
ventilation during labor
shortages
Labor shortages are an issue
in all areas of the livestock
industry, particularly for trained
labor. Due to the skill level ventilation training takes, training
employees is always tough, but

especially when the available
labor isn't there.
"Historically, ventilation has
always been a tough subject," he
said. "It's not intuitive and very
different than traditional animal
husbandry. It is also typically
viewed as a necessary evil and
not a tool. Ventilation (or environment) is truly like nutrition,
management, genetics, etc., in
that can be optimized/improved
to increase productivity and
profitability. I do think with the
advancement in technology,
there will be some great opportunities to improve employee
ventilation training."
Ramirez and his co-workers
at ISU are working to make sure
employees have access to the
training they need. ■
