Dr. Joshua Selsby: Heat Stress Impact on Pigs | Ep. 221 The Swine it Podcast Show

    • Education

Each year, the US swine industry faces significant revenue losses due to heat stress in pigs. This stress manifests in various ways, from visible behavioral shifts like increased panting and seeking cool surfaces, to more covert internal disruptions affecting their health and overall functioning. In this episode, Dr. Joshua Selsby unpacks the physiological and economic ripple effects of heat stress on the swine industry. He also sheds light on potential solutions and the future direction of research in addressing this critical challenge. 

“There's good evidence that heat stress is damaging not just the gastrointestinal tract or the skeletal muscle, but the animal in a very big, robust way." - Dr. Joshua Selsby
