Influence of range of cycling temperature on the performance of growing pigs kept at an average ambient temperature of 20 or 28 degrees C



Influence of range of cycling temperature on the performance of growing pigs kept at an average ambient temperature of 20 or 28 degrees C



Journees de la Recherche Porcine en France 33: 17-23



Three trials, with 192 crossbred pigs each, were carried out to evaluate the effects of ambient temperature of 20 and 28 degrees C maintained constant or cycling over the day by 1.5, 3.5 or 4.5 degrees C around 20 or 28 degrees C, on the performance and feeding behaviour of growing-finishing pigs. Pigs initially weighed 25 kg and were slaughtered at 111 kg. Ambient temperature was minimal and maximal between 5.00 and 9.00 h, and between 17.00 and 21.00 h, respectively.
