It was established that improvement in air quality in livestock buildings could produce significant benefits for animals, workers and the environment. In order to achieve a sustained reduction in the concentration of airborne pollutants in livestock building; the different management, environmental and housing factors, which could influence the concentrations within and emissions of airborne pollutants from livestock buildings had to be statistically evaluated. Thus a broad study of air quality in piggery buildings was designed (1) to determine the key piggery design and management factors that affect the internal concentrations and emissions of airborne pollutants and then to (2) model and therefore able to predict the concentrations and emission rates of the main pollutants. This article considers the implications of the main results of this significant research project.
