dc.description.abstract <p>An energy efficient swine nursery house was designed and evaluated. The design included heated pig brooder boxes, natural ventilation, and passive solar heating. Early weaned pig performance was satisfactory and energy consumption was less than a conventional nursery house. This nursery house has been enthusiastically accepted by South Carolina swine producers.</p>
