Effect of ambient temperature on zootechnical performance of growing-finishing pigs fed ad libitum



Effect of ambient temperature on zootechnical performance of growing-finishing pigs fed ad libitum



Journees de la Recherche Porcine en France 28: 189-194



Two experiments, each on 192 growing-finishing pigs, were conducted to study the effect of ambient temperature on pig performance. Four temperatures were compared: 28, 24, 20 and 17 degrees C. Relative humidity remained constant at 65-70%. Fresh air replacement rates were the same for all treatments. Pigs were fed ad libitum. Health of pigs was recorded: coughing and sneezing, the number of veterinary treatments and at the slaughterhouse the lungs were examined for lesions.
