8. Environment and measuring house
Research into gaseous emissions is carried out in this unit. The total capacity is 90 cows divided between six sections holding 15 cows each, which can be closed off individually. Four sections are equipped with cubicles and different floor types, one of which is used as a reference department. The other two sections are freestalls, one of which has a floor covering of aerated woodchips and the other has a permeable plastic weidevloer, a synthetic pasture-like floor with urine drainage. Incoming and outgoing air can be sampled and analysed in each section. Emissions in each section are measured with special tubes at six points at a height of 3 m and at two places along the roof ridge.
