Total tract digestibility of nitrogen in pigs exposed to high environmental temperatures.


The effect of environmental heat stress on N metabolism was studied using 7 gilts (50.5 ± 1.7 kg initial BW). Pigs were housed in metabolism cages in a climate-controlled room. After a 4-d adaptation, two 14-d experimental periods followed during which the animals were exposed to thermo-neutral temperature (NT; 20.61 ± 0.1°C) or high environmental… (More)
