Influence of HEAT STRESS on PRODUCTIVITY
Lactating sows are particularly Heat Sensitive. At more than 20-22°C, each degree reduces feed intake by 190 g/d, resulting in a reduction in milk production and piglet weight gain. In addition, body reserve mobilization will increase with a decrease in fertility, decreasing the subsequent litter size and increasing in the weaning to estrus interval ratio.
In Grower Pigs, especially during the Finisher Period, Heat Stress will reduce Feed Intake and a reorientation of the metabolism which enhance Fatter Carcasses.
