Effects of hot environments in summer on performances of pigs for digestion and growth



Effects of hot environments in summer on performances of pigs for digestion and growth



Japanese Journal of Swine Science 25(2): 56-60



In the 1st of 2 experiments, 16 pigs (8 castrated and 8 weighing approx. 40 kg were housed in temperature-controlled units at 23 degrees C (group 1) or in conventional pens exposed to hot environment (av. temp. = 26.3 degrees ) (group 2), and fed ad lib. on a diet containing 14.5% crude protein and 3800 cal/g gross energy for 3 wk. Daily feed intake and gain were lower in animals in group 1 than in group 2, but there was no difference between groups in the efficiency of feed utilization.
