The Agrivolt system is a modular system designed to neutralize return current at 60Hz from internal and external sources to the livestock facility. It cancels the stray current by injecting a current inverted by 180° opposed to the current flowing on the ground. Best analogy to its working principles would be 'noise cancelling' headphone.
The Agrivolt system can be installed on any electrical network in North America and any type of livestock facility.
WHAT IS STRAY VOLTAGE AND WHERE DOES IT COME FROM ?
Electrical network and equipment found on livestock farms are constantly evolving. Electrical loads have grown significantly and the automation of
farms has led to non-linear loads such as variable-speed drive, sophisticated ventilation and electronic lighting. These elements leak current, which flows
on the farm's grounding network.
The presence of electric current in the animal environment, regardless of the source, generates stress. Over time, this stress can affect the immune system. A weakened immune system makes the animal more prone to diseases and consequently affects its well-being and performance.

dairy cows are more likely to be affected
Stray voltage stresses cows and affects their immune systems. Cows that are bothered by stray voltage often present some of the following readily observable symptoms:
High incidence of mastitis
High somatic cell count
Stagnation or reduction in production
Reduction in milk production
Problem detecting heat
High breeding rate
Longer milking time
Poor body score
High cull rate
Refusing to enter milk parlor or barn
Lapping water at the trough
Observed symptoms and behaviors in hogs stray voltage stresses pigs and affects their immune systems. Pigs that are bothered by stray voltage often present some of the following readily observable symptoms:
Decrease water consumption
Below normal weight gain
Increase in number of still born piglets
Increase in mortality rate
Decrease feed conversion
Below average number of piglets born
Observed symptoms and behaviors for chicks
Stray voltage stresses chicks and affects their immune systems. Chicks that are bothered by stray voltage often present some of the following readily observable symptoms:
Réduction de la consommation d'eau
Réduction de la matière sèche
Production d'oeufs affectée
Oeufs au sol
