I know a few guys who also quit brumating and have say they have seen better breeding activity and fertility. In both of their cases they think the light cycle is the key. I'm not sure as I still brumate. I keep a lot of corns and kings and my hog all in the same room, so they all go down together. Yes, I do like the break! I will eventually be going with the non-cooling method shortly, but I need to move some animals around and down size to make space in the "warm" room.
My temps drop to 55 and go up as high as 62 this time of year. I am in North Idaho so cooling is really easy. Before I coolded the whole room, I cooled animals in the incubator the was in the garage. Light is on a timer and only comes on six hours a day. They stay down for two month or so before I start warming things up. For the record, the animals are very inactive at 55, but get to 62 and they are more active than I would have guessed.
As I said before, I will be trying thing without brumation by next season and I can see many good reasons for doing it this way.
