Abstract

32 German Landrace sows and their 259 piglets were observed. The formation of the teat order is generally completed within five to seven days. Sex and birthweight have no significant influence on the position of a piglet in the teat order; the same applies to the influence of birth sequence on...

Abstract

Piglets in litters, paired according to farrowing date, were redistributed during the 1st day after birth according to 2 schemes. In scheme AC-BD, 1 sow of the pair received the heaviest and the 3rd heaviest quarters of the combined litters (based on wt. post partum), while the other sow received...

Abstract

The eating, nibbling, drinking, lying, urinating, defaecating and walking behaviour of 35 crossbred pigs, initially 16 kg on average, was studied with 5 different methods of feeding, until 18 weeks old. Pigs were fed to appetite daily at 0730 h, had 2 feeds of 30 min each at 0730 h and 1600 h, 2...

Abstract

There is a close connexion between the function and stability of the social hierarchy and the surrounding environment. Environmental factors which break down the social ranking involve development of frustrated and aggressive behaviour, with increased tail biting and consequent reduced...

Abstract

Experiments are described to investigate the consistency of the feeding order in a group of sows, using a computerised feeder, to calculate a possible social hierarchy among the sows and to investigate the relationship between social hierarchy and feeder access. The observed group consisted of 20...

Abstract

Pelleted and wet feeding systems were used to study the influence of social ranking on feeding station occupation in groups of 16 sows. The results showed a strong correlation between social rank and age, weight and number of litters. Larger, older sows were higher ranking than gilts, were able to...

Abstract

Locomotive, feeding and social behaviours were compared in sows housed under different systems (single housing, group housing with either individual feeding pens or transponder). Single housing allows almost no movement. In group housing, distances covered were greater with transponder feeding as...

Abstract

Groups of sows housed in pens with concrete floors were observed in order to detect differences in feeding and drinking behaviour between animals of high- and low-rank. Dominant individuals remained at the centre of the mash pile defending the food against other animals. The total time spent...
