Heat loss from lying areas as an element in the environmental effects of heat on animals, using the example of pigs



Heat loss from lying areas as an element in the environmental effects of heat on animals, using the example of pigs



Tierhygiene Information, Sonderheft 20(Sonderheft 69): 80-86



The provision of environmental conditions in the animal house which will prevent increased heat loss from the body even at lower ambient temp. was investigated, using the example of lying areas. Male weaners (28-32 d old) were housed singly or in groups on perforated metal floors, wooden slats or straw litter, receiving rationed or ad lib dry feed.
