While laboratory studies involving environmental parameters in animal housing can provide valuable information, the question often arises as to whether such findings are valid in commercial-scale operations. Problems of instrumentation, data recording and lack of appropriate methods of processing the large quantitities of data generated in environmental studies in commercial facilities frequently have been a deterrent in the past to undertaking such projects. However, recent developments in instrumentation and recording equipment have reduced these problems very considerably. This report describes the components of a data acquisition system assembled by the Department of Agricultural Engineering, University of Alberta, for use in such studies.
