Predictions of the heat loss from animal systems under the influence of environmental air temperature using thermal modeling techniques are found to agree with available experimental results. To perform the necessary experiments on heat loss, over a variety of environmental conditions for all species of interest, would be a formidable task. The thermal modeling approach circumvents these difficulties by the use of basic heat-transfer equations and properties and is suggested and exemplified as an alternative.
