Abstract

Mixing litters of pigs often leads to short- or long-lasting aggression. As social recognition (SR) is important for the development and maintenance of stable social groups, a lack or disruption of SR could prolong agonistic interactions and reduce welfare. Investigations of SR abilities are...

Abstract

Early weaning of piglets is a common practice in the pig industry. However, this type of management can be related to behavioural and welfare problems. Environmental enrichment can be a useful tool to diminish some of these problems; nevertheless, there is no information about the effect of...

Abstract

This experiment examined the effects of group composition on sow aggressive behaviour and welfare. Over 6 time replicates, 360 sows (parity 1-6) were mixed into groups (10 sows per pen, 1.8 m2/sow) composed of animals that were predicted to be aggressive (n=18 pens) or groups composed of animals...

Abstract

Early life experiences can affect social behaviour in later life, but opportunities for socio-behavioural development are often overlooked in current husbandry practices. This experiment investigated the effects of rearing piglets in two-stage group lactation (GL) system from 7 or 14 days of age on ...

Abstract

Prenatal stress (PNS) can have detrimental effects on behaviour and welfare, such as decreased exploration. Whether housing enrichment before weaning compensate negative effect of PNS in commercial pigs is unknown. To address this question, 44 sows were assigned to either a mixing stress (T) or a...

Abstract

The purpose of this study was to determine how increasing the frequency of co-mingling affected piglets' behavior development before and after weaning. Co-mingling once (CM1), piglets interacted with 1 unfamiliar litter Days 10-18 after birth; co-mingling twice (CM2), piglets interacted with 1...

Abstract

The aim of the study was to investigate maternal characteristics, such as behaviour towards piglets and humans, nest-building as well as lying down behaviour of sows and to determine their influence on biological performance data. Repeatability of behaviour across multiple litters and relationships ...
