Climatical factors have important influence in animal housing on productivity of some different species, different courses and physiological reaction of the organisms. Important are keeping in stables, or housing areas with the general -valid standard and their given as are - temperature, relative humidity, air moving- air speed in our continental climate. Influence of climate parameter have increasing on importance if coming climate change, especially if coming extremely weather in summer and in winter period must be in prescribed state. In this state is necessary regional modification courses extreme higher temperature and, low relative humidity and low air moving in place of the animals stays-place of abode. In life areas must be complete climate parameters hold in comfort zones as welfare parameters. From this point of view is actually and necessary technically reducing the extreme climate condition in stable - especially negative influence of the higher air temperature, low humidity and air moving. Important is good solving building construction, their thermo-insulation properties, and technically processing of the air cooling with know technique evaporation-or technology air fogging and reduction with higher air moving in staying place of housed animals. If are not respected these recommendation for reduction animal extremely climate environment, come reduction efficiency using ME in food or production and health problems as animal mortality i.e. chicken broilers at finishing fattening period etc. If are not good air quality are problems with health are increased, therefore are necessary to secure improving ventilating systems and their operation regime.
