Animals will be subjected to different environmental temperatures in ranges within and outside of their thermal neutral zone. Novel methods of detecting when the animal is pushed beyond its ability to cope will be developed. Based on the physiologic and behavioral responses of animals, management techniques will be investigated that allow animals to cope with thermal challenges.
