|Abstract: ||Environmentally induced periods of heat stress decrease productivity with devastating economic consequences to global animal agriculture. Acclimatization is a process by which animals adapt to environmental conditions and engage behavioral, hormonal and metabolic changes that are characteristics of either acclimatory homeostasis or homeorhetic mechanisms used by the animals to survive in a new ‘physiological state’. These physiological modifications alter nutrient partitioning and may prevent he|
