Description

The thermal environment in the breeding facility plays an important role in total herd management. This manifests itself in poor conception and farrowing rates that may not be detected until weeks or months past the occurrence of an improper thermal environment. Because of this, it is important to anticipate these potential lulls in breeding performance and counteract them by managing the breeding facility environment properly and adding additional open females to keep the facilities full.
