||Effect of manual feeding on the level of farmer's exposure to airborne contaminants in the confinement nursery pig house
||Mar. 2008, Vol.46, No.2, p.138-143. Illus. 25 ref.
||The objective of this study was to investigate the effect of manual feeding on the level of farmer's exposure to airborne contaminants in confinement nursery pig houses. A control pig house was used for comparison, where no feed was supplied during the experimental period. The levels of all the airborne contaminants besides respirable dust, airborne fungi and ammonia were found to be significantly higher in the pig house with feeding than in the control pig house. In conclusion, manual feeding by farmer increases the exposure level of airborne contaminants compared to operations involving no feeding.
