Keywords: Carbon dioxide, heat stress, swine, mechanical ventilation
Ventilation was interrupted in a 2000-head nursery building, and air temperature and carbon dioxide levels were measured. Tests were conducted in two rooms, one with 6.8 kg (15 lbs.) pigs and the other with 22.7 kg (50 lbs.) pigs. In the room with the 22.7 kg (50 lbs.) pigs, two tests were conducted, one without any ventilation on and the second with only mixing fans on.
