This project, conducted in collaboration with a Belgian team, will develop an integrated tool for measuring the air quality in livestock buildings in Belgium. The proposed project is part of a broader effort to come up with solutions that reduce environmental impacts and address air quality issues associated with new breeding systems. An innovative aspect of this project is the combination of different air samplers and analyzers connected to a novel, intuitive and ergonomic digital interface that rapidly interprets data. This tool will greatly facilitate the measurement of air quality in the Belgian facilities relative to current methods, which are more burdensome and costlier.
