Perfomance of an evaporative cooling system of a finishing phase swine barn

Abstract: The thermal environment inside of a finishing phase swine barn has great influence on the success of swine production. This environment can be characterized by the black globe temperature and humidity index (BGHI), that represents the air temperature, humidity, wind speed and radiation. Due to the small number of Brazilian reports on this specific subject, this experiment was performed to verify the effect of one kind of evaporative cooling system on the thermal comfort of the animal in a swine barn, during th… Show more

“…In swine production, fogging systems allow the improvement of growth performance by 5% to 10%, especially in finishing pigs (Nichols et al, 1979;Dutertre et al, 1998;Haeussermann et al, 2007). However, the gain of evaporative cooling pads for improving pig performance under heat stress is relatively low perhaps because it results in an increase of air moisture (Dutertre et al, 1998;Sartor et al, 2003;Kunavongkrit et al, 2005). Finally, pad cooling is effective to lower T a in closed poultry or pig houses (Europe, United States, etc.…”

“…Evaporative cooling system improved physiological, behavioral and productive responses from growing swine (Huynh et al, 2006), environmental thermal condition (Sartor et al, 2003) and provided an increase in weaning piglet weight (Justino et al, 2015). Otherwise, Collin et al (2001) reported that weight gain and voluntary feed intake of swine were reduced by up to 37 and 30% respectively at 33 °C when compared to 23 ºC.…”
