Abstract Varkens nemen graag een modderbad om hun lichaam te koelen, maar in de gangbare varkenshouderij is zoiets moeilijk inpasbaar. In welke mate zoelen belangrijk is voor varkens werd uitgezocht door Wageningen UR Livestock Research. Volgens Deense adviseurs is het belangrijk om varkens een koelmogelijkheid te bieden om hiermee hokbevuiling tegen te gaan. De Denen adviseren hun varkenshouders daarom een sprinklerinstallatie te installeren in de stal. In Nederland wordt dit nog nauwelijks toegepast.
