Gaseous pollutants in broiler house may cause negative effects to the production performance and health of broilers. Ventilation is an effective and simple way to improve air quality in broiler house. For the purpose of heat preservation, there is little ventilation in broiler house in winter season for small-scale broiler production in China, which leads to serious air quality issues. This paper proposes an optimization of a local ventilation system which could be used for gaseous pollutants removal in winter.
