Concentration of a large number of animals in the same building, as foreseen by standard projects of large livestock complexes. These places high demands on micro-climate parameters, even a short-term change. It can lead to large economic and economic losses.

Investigating energy-saving methods of forming microclimate parameters, we summarized the disparate data of scientific research of various scientists in the field of veterinary hygiene and veterinary medicine. According to these information, we see to obtain the minimum cost of livestock products, we must control and manage the parameters of the microclimate and maintain them at the optimum level. One of the main directions in energy saving is the development of models of microclimate systems. It saves time and money when we have chose effective solutions of microclimate systems at the stage of their justification and development. Summarizing energy-saving measures in one project is not a guarantee of the most effective solution. Each of the solutions can be economically profitable in itself, but their combination in one project can give the opposite result. We have been selecting the optimal set of microclimate systems from a number of possible, it is necessary to use the scientific method of system analysis, which you allow to estimate the consequences of each solution in advance. The theoretical principles of the formation of heat and mass exchange processes are described in the article: in machines with animals that determine the analytical dependences of the influence of various microclimate parameters on the productivity of animals, the feed consumption; in the microclimate system of livestock buildings. Account the results of the theoretical and experimental studies have carried out, a mathematical model of the microclimate system of the cattle-breeding premises was developed, which it is determined by a system of three equations. In the basis of this mathematical model, an algorithm and a computer program for calculation have been developing that it allows to optimize the main design, technological and energy parameters of the system.
