When designing tanks, the total volume of material to be stored must be calculated. Guides on tank design, evaluation of animal waste volumes, and calculation of water and feed losses were recently updated. This guide provides a comprehensive calculation method that takes into account volumes of bedding added as well as feed and water losses.

Assessing an electrostatic precipitator system designed to improve air quality and, thereby, worker health and animal welfare.
The aim of this project was to identify manure management strategies that boost productivity on Québec dairy farms and reduce their emissions of greenhouse gases.
Project, conducted in collaboration with a Belgian team, to develop an integrated tool for measuring the air quality in livestock buildings.
