Optimal livestock climate all year round

Whether you are producing broilers, eggs or parent stock, many factors influence the productivity of your livestock. Modern and efficient poultry production requires an inclusive overview and creation of optimum conditions for the animals.

House climate is important for animal growth, and the animals will not give optimum yield unless several parameters are in order. SKOV supplies ventilation systems for all production types and climate conditions, meaning that a SKOV system ensures the best climate for your animals.​

With skov you get:

  • Solutions for all types of climate
  • Optimum conditions for the birds
  • Reliable and easy-to-operate system
Ventilation system for the temperate parts of the world

SKOV's LPV system is a classic low-pressure system for use in poultry production, which can be adapted to most poultry houses. The system is developed for the temperate parts of the world and comprises a number of components which together ensure optimal climate conditions for the animals.



The LPV system with production equipment

The system

All animals have different climate requirements during their life cycles. An LPV ventilation system ensures precise adjustment of temperature, air humidity, air velocity, etc. Fresh air is supplied to the house by means of either wall, ceiling or roof inlets, and the climate is regulated by adjusting the speed by which the air is supplied to the house, among other things. In order to exhaust the used air from the house, SKOV has developed an aerodynamic chimney with the most energy-efficient fan on the market, which is regulated by a modern house computer. SKOV’s house computer contains all necessary functions for regulating the house climate with consideration for the animals’ climate requirements, while also being easy to operate.



Extension options

​According to need, the LPV system can be expanded to include both heating and cooling systems, ​ ​​just as an alarm and emergency opening system can be established and SKOV's farm management system, FarmOnline®, added.

Ventilation system for the subtropical parts of the world

The SKOV Tunnel system was developed for poultry houses in the subtropical parts of the world, experiencing constant heat and with a need to lower the temperature.

The system

In a Tunnel system, the air inlet is placed at the side or the house end and is clad with cooling pads or installed with high-pressure cooling. There are several types of air inlets for a tunnel system, and they can also be supplemented by cooling systems in the form of cooling pads or high-pressure cooling. To create an airflow in the house, i.e. cooling for the animals, gable fans are installed at the opposite end. In other words, the air velocity cools the animals, and the higher the velocity, the lower does the temperature feel. This is all controlled by a house computer that manages the ventilation system based on a series of inputs and settings. The computer is easy to use and includes all necessary functions.



Extension options

A Tunnel system can be augmented with an alarm system, heating, and farm management.​

​The all-weather system​

SKOV's Combi-Tunnel ventilation system is a negative pressure system for poultry houses. The system has been developed for tropical and subtropical climatic zones with daily and seasonal fluctuations of temperature. SKOV's Combi-Tunnel ventilation system combines our LPV and our Tunnel systems and ensures optimum growth conditions for the animals even at very high outdoor temperatures.

The system

A Combi-Tunnel ventilation system incorporates two types of air inlets, the type used depending on the climate outside the livestock house. During colder periods, wall or ceiling inlets are used, whereas very warm periods see the use of large tunnel doors placed at one end of the house. The tunnel doors are supplied either with cooling pads or high-pressure cooling to cool the incoming air before it reaches the area occupied by the animals. The air exhaustion in a Combi-Tunnel ventilation system also depends on the outside temperature. The SKOV aerodynamic exhaust unit with energy-efficient fans sucks air out of the house, but when the outside temperature is very high, air is sucked out through very large gable fans installed at the opposite end of the tunnel door. This creates a cooling air current through the house, lowering the house temperature and ensuring that the animals do not get too hot in spite of the high outside temperatures.



The Combi-Tunnel system is controlled by the intelligent SKOV house computer, adjusting the climate on the basis of the temperature perceived by the animals, ensuring optimum conditions for the animals under conditions characterised by frequent and substantial temperature variations. The house computer is designed on a modular principle and can be adapted to the individual production. The system can be extended with alarm and emergency opening, heating and farm management.
