Sohail Bajwa , how do I calculate the wind speed of 300,00 CFM’s of positive pressure fan intake south end and 300,000

CFM’s negative pressure fans discharging north end of an enclosed holding area/parlor building 140’L x 34’W x 12’ H?

This double 12 herringbone parlor/holding area is a cube of the before mentioned dimensions. Capacity is 135 cows total.
