The efficiency of operant thermoregulatory behaviour in pigs as determined from the rate of oxygen consumption

Abstract

Pigs were trained to perform an operant response for a reinforcement of radiant heat and comparisons were made between oxygen consumption during sessions when extra heat was available and others when it was not. It was found that as judged by the rate of oxygen consumption the efficiency with which heat was obtained was very high when the radiation was… (More)
