Published by the American Society of Agricultural and Biological Engineers, St. Joseph, Michigan

ASAE  ANSI/ASAE EP282.2   February  1993

Keywords: Livestock, Poultry, Safety, Ventilation

1 Purpose and Scope

Many natural, man-made, and unexpected events (i.e., power interruptions, equipment failures, extreme weather conditions, storms, and natural disasters) occur requiring temporary emergency ventilation and care of livestock and poultry. These events may require either short term (i.e., minutes to days) or long term (i.e., weeks to months) temporary emergency ventilation. The purpose of this Engineering Practice is to provide data and guidelines to assist designing emergency ventilation, feeding, watering, and lighting systems for livestock and poultry.
