Abstract Advantages of maintaining piglets at a low temperature during the suckling and weaning period are the higher feed intake and daily gain of the piglets during the suckling and weaning period and the higher yield of the piglets. Besides, the use of energy is lower. Disadvantages of maintaining piglets at a low temperature during the suckling and weaning period are the higher number of crushed piglets by the sow and the higher backfat thickness, lower meat percentage and lower yield of the growing and finishing pigs.
