A total of 144 weaned pigs were used to evaluate the effect of reduced nighttime temperatures on pig performance. No differences were observed in average daily feed intake, daily gain, or feed efficiency regardless of temperature treatment. These results indicate that constant high temperature may not be required for nursery pigs.; Swine Day, Manhattan, KS, November 15, 1984
