“…Therefore, fewer nutrients would be available for growth, impairing the overall production performance, which justifies the decreased daily weight gain (21%) in heat-stressed pigs. Likewise, Santos et al [ 17 ] and Teixeira et al [ 8 ] also verified a reduced feed intake and weight gain in pigs raised under hot conditions, even in different genetic groups (genotype commercial and Piau purebred pigs, respectively), corroborating our findings. Furthermore, no matter the genotype, high temperature resulted in a worse feed efficiency, suggesting that the decreased growth performance at high temperatures reported in our study was not exclusively associated with a reduction in feed intake, but was probably due to the decreased capacity of the animals to use or allocate nutrients for growth.…”

“…According to Carabaño et al [ 7 ], heat-tolerant animals are those that, under high ambient temperature, maintain homeothermy by balancing heat production and dissipation without productive and reproductive losses. In accordance, Teixeira et al [ 8 ] suggested in a previous study a greater heat-tolerance in Piau pigs than commercial pigs, due to the decreased magnitude of feed intake impairment and preserved feed conversion rate of the native Brazilian breed at high ambient temperatures. In addition, Rosé et al [ 9 ] and Gourdine et al [ 3 ] showed genetic variation in the thermotolerance of pigs, suggesting an improvement in this trait by genetic selection.…”
