About the Project
In this project you will work to investigate the following questions to address the fundamental biological impacts of temperature in pigs:
o How do extreme temperatures impact on farrowing performance, and early life piglet growth, health and development?
o How do extreme temperatures impact on the fertility and health of sows over time?
o To what extent is exposure to extremes in temperature associated with increased prevalence and shedding of Salmonella in the herd?
