The invention relates to a method of keeping pigs in summer camps, can be used in farms of all forms of ownership, as well as on the farms for growing replacements pigs.

Known individual and group methods of maintenance and repair of the young pigs in cages and machines; with range (paved) and without it, and bezvygulnoe in buildings and hangars. In various technologies and feeding hard enough to grow constitutionally strong breeding boars and sows with good growth energy, to provide them with the necessary exercise to develop muscle mass, removal of aggressiveness and meet the inborn instinct of digging, digging snout soil, abrasion of teeth.

To ensure walking and active exercise of young pigs are known various methods, including free grazing, as well as "Fitness" of floating drinkers sealed items (patent No. 97112205), "training"is that change in the process of exercise the animal fluid pressure in the cavity of the Mat to regulate the load on the limbs of animals (patent No. 2027357), all kinds of "Casali" etc.

Technical and practical result achieved by the present invention, is:

- maintain an active exercise of repair young pigs;

- the government is providing physical activity;

- removing aggressiveness;

- quenching "curiosity" (exploratory behavior), the instinct of digging, digging his snout in the process of pushing, moving and flipping tires (car W-469), bound foot chain attached to the metal pin driven into the ground (Figure 1). The height of the protruding part of the pin (1) must exceed the height of the tire (h=140-150 cm), as the tire during rolling or moving around the pin can be worn on him, and the effect of "simulator" will be lost. The diameter of the pin should be sufficient to preserve their form under the influence of animals (d=150-300 mm). Car tire (6) is fixed by means of Malcocinado circuit (4) bolt with nut (5) at a distance of 1 m from the pin. The pin is worn metal ring (2) (d=300-600 mm), and is joined by "crank" (3), rotating around its axis and prevents twisting of the chain.

The lid for the "Trainer" can be used depending on the age of the pigs. Best results are obtained when using tires, used (with great protector), brand car W-469. To attract the attention of pigs to the "Trainer" can be painted tires in bright colors, such as stripes or spots.

Empirically found that the replacements pigs / min net is Eloy meat breed (CM-1) when "the game" with this Trainer "has made more active exercise compared with control animals, increased physical activity, was shot aggressiveness, which reduced the injury rate by 25-30%, satisfy the curiosity and the instinct of digging and digging snout in the process of pushing, tilting and moving tires. In pigs from the experimental group after the "Trainer" has been improved appetite, increased feed digestibility and daily gains. Thus, in replacement gilts of the experimental group at the age of 5-6 months, having access to the "Trainer", the average increase was 9% higher than in animals of the control group without access to the simulator. Repair pigs from the experimental group were more mobile, less stale, better developed and, consequently, on 20 days earlier had reached sexual maturity in comparison with analogues; high sexual activity and fertility.

This "Simulator" can be installed in summer exercise yards as paved and without, under the open sky, under canopies and in the premises, one in five pigs. When installed in the machine or enclosure few "Trainers" pins must drive at a distance of not less than 2.5 m from each other when the chain length 1 m

The installation costs of this "Trainer" is composed of the cost of 1.5 m Malcocinado chain with ring and "crank", a metal pin with a diameter of not less than 15 mm, the length of 140-150 cm and the former in the pack is the use of old tires from the car WA-469.

"Simulator" for the active exercise of repair young pigs, consisting of automobile tires from UAZ-469, painted in bright colors, such as stripes or spots to attract the attention of pigs recorded using Malcocinado chain length of 1 m through a crank, rotating around its axis and prevent it from twisting the metal ring of large diameter, suited to the pin driven into the ground to a height exceeding the height of the tires.

SUBSTANCE: method consists of IR source and reflector. Heat flow from reflector is determined as difference between heater heat flow and IR source heat flow for IR source with radiation wave length from 0.5 to 7mcm at constant suspension height. Maximum heat flow from reflector is defined. Dependence of maximum reflector heat flow at angle deviation from normal line to the exposed surface and reflector edge height is also calculated. Optimal angle corresponding to maximum heat flow is defined. Height of reflector edges is increased at optimal angle to the sizes when temperature at low reflector edge is equal to ambient temperature. Heat flow density on the exposed surface is reduced by changing angle between normal line to exposed surface and reflector edge plane from 0° to optimal α=αopt angle value or from α=αopt to 90°.
