In our latest #blog, we discuss the trend toward heavier market weights for finishing #pigs:

In the last couple decades, lean growth and feed efficiency have dramatically improved average pig weight for market. Productivity of the average pig #farmer has increased, with pigs per litter and average market hog weights both increasing. A sure sign that a farrow-to-finish operation is successful is that pigs remain profitable at heavier market weights.

Osborne Super-Jet circulation fans utilize the Coanda Effect with high jet velocity that creates a "jet stream" of air at the ceiling. As Mr. Gadd points out, then gravity takes over and air descends into pens.

The proper mixture of ventilation components - exhaust fans, air inlets, and circulation fans - means dead air and damp pens are completely eliminated. Contact the ventilation experts at Osborne to design the best system for you and your animals.
