Development of the Southeast South Dakota Experiment Farm near Centerville furnished an excellent opportunity to study swine housing management. Initial steps in a research program were construction of temporary houses and later the construction of a permanent, insulated, ventilated house with four different floor types. These structures have been used to gather data on the effects of floor-type and controlled environment on performance of growing-finishing pigs.
