Use of summer shelters on a pig-keeping complex

Use of summer shelters on a pig-keeping complex

Zhivotnovodstvo (4): 52-55

A comparative trial involving about 1000 pregnant sows and 600 gilts showed that gilts raised in open-fronted summer shelters, with wooden walls, a tiled roof and small exercise yard, had higher fertility, bigger litters and 4.2% higher milk yields than gilts raised in large conventional piggeries. Liveweight gains from 4 to 9 months of age were virtually the same for both groups.
