The MREC presents this page in cooperation with on-going research
at the University of Wisconsin
- Madison on the use of high speed (HS) and high volume low speed (HVLS)
fans for cooling and ventilation of dairy barns. This research is being
conducted by Dr. David W. Kammel of the Biological
Systems Engineering Department, with funding from Wisconsin
Public Service Corporation, Wisconsin
Focus on Energy, and Big Ass Fans.
This page will be periodically updated as information becomes available.
Questions regarding this study may be addressed to the Webmaster via e-mail
at the address below, or to Dr. Kammel at email@example.com.

On July 31, 2002, a poster
session on HVLS fans was presented by UW- Madison at the 2002 conference
of the American Society of Agricultural Engineers. The poster provides an overview
of the research project and includes some field data obtained to date.
