In this study, an alternative pad material was searched against common cardboard pads which are used in evaporative cooling (fan-pad) of poultry houses. The evaporation efficiency values of pad materials and their effects on productivity of broilers such as; live weight gain, feed consumption, feed conversion, etc. were compared against each other.
