Hot weather stresses swine in many ways. Some effects are very visible and measurable, while other hidden complications may go unnoticed until weeks or even months have passed. Poor feed conversion, reduced feed intake, lower conception rates, early embryonic deaths, and even deaths of mature animals can result when hogs are exposed to abundant heat. Our innovative, easy-to-use and cost-effective Drip-Cool and Spray-Cool systems curb the far-reaching impacts of heat stress on sows, boars, and finishing hogs. Wetting the hog’s hide for brief periods of time with a drip or coarse spray is the most successful technique for cooling swine.
