This study compared the effects of negative pressure and push-pull ventilation systems on the performance of young pigs reared under summer conditions. Results were evaluated based on the six week period (5 weeks to 11 weeks old) performance of 120 crossbred pigs during the summer of 1987. The pig average daily weight gain and the pen average daily feed consumption were statistically similar under both ventilation systems.
