The energy and protein metabolism of pigs growing at a high ambient temperature



The energy and protein metabolism of pigs growing at a high ambient temperature



Animal Production 16(2): 117-133



Eight pigs from 2 litters were used to compare effects of ambient temperature 33 deg to 35 deg C or 25 deg on protein and energy metabolism. The pigs weighed from 18 to 27 kg at the start, age 7 or 9 weeks, and were killed at 70 kg. Two levels of feed were allowed, the higher roughly to appetite of pigs at the higher temperature. Diet contained barley meal 89, buttermilk powder 20, meat meal 10, salt 0.5 and bone flour 0.4%; gross energy was 4280 kcal/kg DM and crude protein 22.8% of DM.
