The effect of change of temperature on the basal metabolism of swine

  • J. W. Capstick (a1) and T. B. Wood (a2)

Extract

It has long been generally accepted that an animal requires more food in cold weather than in hob weather, that, in fact and within certain limits, an animal's food requirement increases as the temperature falls. The number of precise measurements however of the effect of change of temperature on food requirement is very small, and it was with the object of extending the knowledge of this important subject that the following investigation was undertaken.
