To minimize the loss of weight, it is necessary that the platform is in the penumbra with a temperature varying between 18 and 23C and well to be ventilated (LANA, 2000). Evaluation of the Performance of the Lot When following the performance of each lot, the producer will have the possibility to evaluate and to quantify the efficiency of the used techniques. To evaluate the efficiency of production between lots, the Index of Eficincia Produtiva can be used (IEP), this index can vary in function of the age of abates (IT WENT), of the viability (VB), of the alive average weight (PM), of the consumption of ration (CR) and of the alimentary conservation (HERE), in the withdrawal of the lot (LANA, 2000).
