The production efficiency of poultry farms, the health and welfare of both farm workers and birds might be compromised by high concentrations of airborne particles found in poultry buildings. In addition, these high internal airborne particle concentrations easily translate to high airborne particle emissions that could reduce the environmental sustainability of poultry farms. This chapter reviews the risk factors predisposing poultry buildings to high airborne particle concentrations and suggests methods for managing the identified factors to improve air quality. In addition to these proactive management methods that can inhibit airborne particle generation in broiler buildings, reactive methods (that can be used to deal with existing air quality problems) are also discussed in this chapter.
