1. The heat losses and energy balances of thirty-eight individually housed pigs (initial body-weights 21--38 kg) were measured continuously for periods of 14 d when they were maintained at environmental temperatures of 10, 15, 20, 25 or 30 degrees. At each temperature four levels of feeding were given approximating to once, twice and three times the(More)
1. The heat loss for individual growing pigs, whose initial body-weight was 25-40 kg, was measured continuously for periods of 14 or 21 d when they were maintained at an environmental temperature of either 20 or 30 degrees. For each temperature the feeding level before and after a period of fasting was held at either 39 or 45g/kg body-weight per d. Four(More)

I. Rates of oxygen consumption and carbon dioxide production were measured in pigs from birth to 3 days of age in an open-circuit system. 2. The mean respiratory quotient (RQ) during the first 6 h following birth was 0.95 in fasted pigs and 0.91 in pigs which were allowed to feed. 3. The RQ fell during the remainder of the first postnatal day to mean values(More)
1. Rates of oxygen consumption of albino and hairless mice were measured in a metabolism chamber during periods of approximately 5 or 24 hr. Rectal temperature was measured before and after each period. The chamber temperatures used were 22, 30 and 32 degrees C for both albino and hairless, and in addition 34 and 36 degrees C for the hairless mice.2. The(More)
