Cooling gradients across pens in a finishing piggery 2. effects on excretory behavior



Cooling gradients across pens in a finishing piggery 2. effects on excretory behavior



Journal of Agricultural Engineering Research 28(3): 247-260



A review is presented of the factors likely to influence the excretory behavior of finishing pigs highlights thermal effects as being of significant importance with the lesser effects of commotion and previous system of housing. Pigs lie in the warmest area of their pens and excrete elsewhere under otherwise similar conditions of, for example, pen shape and size, feeder and drinker positions, solid pen floors, slatted excretory floors, lighting and previous housing. Other parameters which influence the quantity of excreta on the lying area but not to override the hypothesis were seasonal variations, the presence of a step down into the excretory area and the stocking density.
