Supplemental heat

Every year, pre-weaned pig mortality costs U.S. hog producers $197 million in lost profits. Poorly regulated supplemental heat is a significant factor in these losses, making newborn pigs more susceptible to sickness and disease.

High or low temperatures also force piglets away from the safe area of the heat source and increase their risk of being crushed by the sow. 52% of pre-wean losses are due to crushing.
