Heat stress in poultry and pigs
High temperatures are a long-observed stressor in poultry and pigs. It affects livestock production worldwide and has a significant impact on animal welfare and performance. It is the cause of high economic losses resulting from reduced feed intake, poorer growth performance, higher feed conversion rates, lower laying rates and poorer meat and egg quality.
