People living in the vicinity of newly build or enlarged livestock farms are concerned about possible effects on their health and their quality of life. This concern is mainly related to expected increasing concentrations of particulate matter (dust) in the environment and possible transmission of airborne diseases from animals to humans (zoonotic diseases). The objective of this study was to develop a measuring protocol for determining emissions of bio-aerosols from animal houses and to determine the efficiency of potential reduction systems.
