Dear Prof. Donzele,Your comments and observations are very much appreciated. I utterly agree with you that understanding properly the ideal feeding pattern of sows under heat stress or thermoneutral conditions is essential to establish an ideal feeding program from a formulation and a feeding management perspective. Our findings, which will be more discussed in the coming videos, indicate that pro ...

This increase in litter size leads to a huge burden on the sow to feed her litter. The objective of the sows is simple: to supply more milk - and for this purpose, they need to eat. Listen to Professor Bruno Silva from the Federal University ...
