  1. This video features vegetable oil sprinkling as a management practice to address emissions, odors and dust coming from animal housing. The principle behind vegetable oil sprinkling is that oil is sprayed into the air causing dust particles to stick to oil droplets and other dust particles, thereby settling to the floor.

  2. This video features electrostatic precipitation as a management practice to address emissions, odors, and dust from animal housing. Electrostatic systems work by imparting a negative charge on dust particles, causing them to stick to grounded surfaces such as gates, floors, and walls.

  3. This video features biofilters as a management practice to address emissions, odors and dust coming from animal housing. Biofilters are used on mechanically ventilated livestock buildings to treat the ventilation air. A bed of biological material, normally wood chips, is created and the ventilation air flows through the material. Gases are absorbed by cultures of microbes that develop in the bed.

  4. This video features chimneys as a management practice to address odor and dust coming from animal housing. The use of chimneys can elevate odors and increase dispersion with the increased wind speed and air turbulence at higher elevations.

  5. This video features pit ventilation as a management practice to address emissions, odors and dust coming from animal housing. Pit ventilation does not function as originally thought and research has shown it does not provide increased air quality for animals and it does increase the emission rate from the pit.
