Further studies on the energy and protein metabolism of pigs growing at a high ambient temperature, including measurements with fasting pigs



Further studies on the energy and protein metabolism of pigs growing at a high ambient temperature, including measurements with fasting pigs



Animal Production 19(Part 2): 211-220



The four treatment groups, comprising variations of temperature (25 deg or 34 deg C) and feeding level (high or low) each contained two castrated Large WhiteXLandrace pigs. The experiment was continued through the growth period (20-75 kg), and there were seven-day balance periods at intervals, during which heat production was measured, and faeces and urine were collected, for both fed and starved pigs. Results are tabulated.
