Abstract: The experiment aimed the effect of the environmental temperature alternatively 35°C/20°C (experimental group) compared to the constant temperature of 20°C (control group) on the energy metabolism of Large White pigs during the late fattening period. The experiment was ended when the animals reached 100 kg body weight. The animals had free access to standard, isoprotein and isocalory diets. The daily exposure for 10 hours to 35°C increased the fattening period with 11 days, depressed the average daily gain by 23% and the fat layer thickness by 12.5%. The efficiency of metabolisable energy utilization as energy retained in fat was 14.1% lower in the experimental group than in the control group.
