Abstract

Re-location and mixing after weaning increase the risk of aggression in weaned pigs. To quantify the effects of tail docking, teeth clipping and toy enrichment on the growth performances, behaviour, lesions, and physiological indicators of weaned pigs after re-location and mixing, a total of 262...

Abstract

Pigs reared in barren conditions are exposed to many different stressors, compromising their welfare and producing physiological and behavioural changes. The aim of this study was to assess the effect of environmental enrichment (EE) consisting of natural hemp ropes, sawdust, rubber balls, and a...

Abstract

Weaning is often an abrupt and stressful process. We studied the effects of administering oxytocin, subcutaneously or intranasally, on the ability of pigs to cope with weaning. On a commercial farm 144, 30 day-old pigs from 24 litters were used. On the day of weaning, one male and one female in...

Abstract

Under farming conditions piglets generally face several simultaneous stressors including separation from the dam, an abrupt change from milk to a solid diet and changes in the social and housing environments. In this study we tested the hypothesis that increasing the number of environmental...

Abstract

A herd of 86 Iberian pigs aged 13±0.5 months and with an average live weight of 110±1.3 kg at the start of the study was followed to monitor their social organisation (spontaneous group size: GS) and resting preferences when free ranging on natural pastures in a dehesa of evergreen oaks (Quercus...

Abstract

The influence of social stressors on pig performance, although undeniable, is frequently underestimated, and in pig growth modelling is generally ignored. The aims here were to quantify the effects of the main social stressors (i.e., group size, space allowance, feeder space allowance, and mixing)...

Abstract

320 pigs were reared from birth to 15 weeks of age in either barren or enriched environments. The barren environments were defined by common intensive housing conditions (slatted floors and in terms of recommended space allowances), while the enriched environments incorporated extra space and...

Abstract

In a 4-week trial with 12-week old pigs, i/m injection with amperozide at l mg/kg body weight before mixing of previously unacquainted pigs reduced agonistic behaviour and physical damage (bites and slash marks). Amperozide improved daily gain by 70 g (17%). In 7 other experiments with 1648 pigs...
