Abstract

The behaviour of 200 breeding sows permanently kept in individual pens, 200 X 64 cm, built of metal tubes, on concrete floors without bedding, was observed for a total of 13 hours. During that time chewing movements were noted in 15%, bar biting in 25.5%, and a dog-like sitting posture with closed...

Abstract

An experiment was carried out in a 55-sow, SPF commercial unit, to observe the behavioural adaptation of newly weaned pigs (7 to 10 kg) to air movement in a typical weaner pen. Direct air currents were generated by a fan placed at 4 positions around the pen. Observations were made of activity,...

Abstract

Plasma free-corticosteroid concentrations, aggressive behaviour and motivation to interact socially and explore a novel environment were observed in 39 female pigs housed either in groups of 4-7 animals or in tether stalls over 2 parities. Gilts in tethers in their first pregnancy had significantly ...

Abstract

Plasma free-corticosteroid concentrations, aggressive behaviour and levels of motivation to interact socially and explore a novel environment were observed to test the hypothesis that the chronic stress response previously observed in tether-housed pigs may have been due to unresolved aggression...

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

Pregnant Large White × Landrace gilts in groups of 4 were housed at 1.97 or 0.9 m2/pig, with or without partial stalls and fed within the partial stalls or on the floor of the pen. In the 90 min following grouping of the (unfamiliar) pigs, the presence of the partial stalls reduced the number of...

Abstract

Seventy-eight sows were combined in groups of 4 or 5 animals, of which 26 were involved more than once; thus 106 events at 23 different dates were available for statistical analysis. The animals were grouped (distributed over 1 yr) in a paved loose housing area of 270 m2 on 2 d for 2 h each; on day ...

Abstract

Crossbred growing pigs, with an average initial weight of 29.9 kg, were housed in groups of 15 in 10 experimental pens (5 shapes × 2 sizes) to assess the importance of pen shape in the perception of space quality. Pen sizes provided 0.396 and 0.356 m2 per pig. In Experiment 1, 4 replications, each...
