A note on the metabolism of Ca, P, Mg, Na and K by pigs growing at a high ambient temperature



A note on the metabolism of Ca, P, Mg, Na and K by pigs growing at a high ambient temperature



Animal Production 21(3): 341-343



Four groups of 2 male pigs were kept from 20 to 70 kg liveweight at 25 deg or 33 deg C and were given 1.7 or 2.5 times maintenance requirements. Amongst results already published (NAR 45, 7679) was the development of lameness in pigs at 33 deg and on the higher plane of feeding. Increases in urinary excretion of Ca and K were observed at 33 deg , but the effect on Ca excretion was very small, relative to the amount retained; K retention was also significantly decreased.
