Crossbred barrows, observed at temperatures of 62 and 95Â°F, were fed either a control or a fat added diet. Pigs housed at 95Â°F ate significantly less feed, gained slower, and were less efficient than littermates housed at 62Â°F. Fat addition to the diet did not significantly influence performance when fed at 62 or 95Â°F. The addition of fat did not appear to reduce heat stress or improve performance when fed at the higher temperature.; Swine Day, Manhattan, KS, November 12, 1981
