Odour from tunnel ventilated broiler sheds has the potential to cause odour impacts. Meat chicken producers are under pressure to reduce odour impacts and need cost-effective solutions. Windbreak walls have been proposed as an affordable technology that may improve the dispersion of odours from tunnel ventilated broiler sheds, in turn reducing odour impacts.
Information presented in this report will enable better decision making for those considering or recommending windbreak walls to reduce odour impacts.
