Nighttime Cooling Pad Operation During Extremely Hot Weather
August 11th, 2011 by Grow With Tyson

It is generally recommended that evaporative cooling pads should not be operated at night because the relative humidity of the air outside a poultry house tends to run 80% or higher at night. Operating pads when the outside relative humidity is above 80% produces little cooling (less than 3oF) and tends to saturate the income air with moisture making it more difficult for the birds to cool themselves.
