    Fat and lean pigs were observed at temperatures of 0(32F), 5(41F), 10(50F), 15(59F), and 20C(68F). In comparing fat and lean pigs no significant differences were observed in feed-to-gain ratio or average daily gain. Pigs ...
  • Nichols, David A.; Ames, D.R.; Hines, Robert H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1980)
    We used 128 barrows averaging approximately 160 lbs. and temperatures of 32, 41, 50, 59, 68, 77, 86 and 95 F to study the effects of temperature on growth and efficiency. No significant differences in performance were ...

    Two trials involving 168 finishing pigs were conducted to compare continuous fogging with intermittent wetting to reduce heat stress in swine. In the second trial, intermittent wetting by sprinklers (1 min. sprinkle, 29 ...

    During heat stress swine must rely an evaporation as a mechanism for heat loss. Providing water via sprinklers, showers, and foggers is a practical method of reducing heat stress. It is imperative in any evaporative system ...

    Crossbred barrows, observed at temperatures of 62 and 95°F, were fed either a control or a fat added diet. Pigs housed at 95°F ate significantly less feed, gained slower, and were less efficient than littermates housed at ...
  • Nichols, David A.; Murphy, James P.; Pollmann, D.S.; Ames, D.R. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1982)
    Twenty-eight sows and gilts were used to evaluate the value of drip sprinkling to reduce heat stress during lactation. Sprinkled sows had significantly lower respiration rates (P<.05) and consumed significantly more feed ...
