- ... Heat stress has negative impacts on pork production, particularly in the grow-finish phase. During heat stress events, the feeding behaviour of pigs is altered to reduce heat production. Several different systems have been developed to study feeding behaviour. Those systems are not an accurate representation of grow-finish commercial production, as feed intake is monitored for only one pig at a ti ...
