With temperatures potentially reaching 40oC we are going to see sows seriously heat stressed.


  • Monitor sows closely for signs of distress - hose down if very hot. 
  • Turn off lamps and mats in rooms.
  • Fill sows' water troughs.
  • If possible wet down passageways frequently for evaporative cooling.
  • Feed late at night.
  • Ensure all drinkers work.
  • Outdoor: ensure sows have access to wallows.
