Abstract

Chicken meat and egg production in the, Cukurova region of Southern Turkey shows enormous potential for growth. However, high temperatures in summer pose serious difficulties for these types of production. Evaporative pad cooling systems have been used to minimise rises in temperature and are commonly used in poultry houses in this region.
