This project will assess an electrostatic precipitator system designed to improve air quality and, thereby, worker health and animal welfare. A series of preliminary tests have already been conducted by researchers at the University of Saskatchewan on how to best utilize this technique. The next step will involve experiments we will conduct at two breeding houses at the Deschambault experimental farm run by IRDA and CRSAD.
