Swine day, 1981; Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station contribution; no. 82-128-S; Report of progress (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service); 406; Swine; Finishing diets; Heat stress


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 62°F. Fat addition to the diet did not significantly influence performance when fed at 62 or 95°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
