Abstract

Individual pigs, Sus scrofa, differ considerably in how aggressive they are during encounters with unfamiliar conspecifics. We examined whether individual coping characteristics of pigs were predictive of aggression during social encounters and the resulting social status. Piglets were subjected to ...

Abstract

Two experiments were carried out to investigate the inter-individual variation in immune reactivity and disease susceptibility of group housed pigs of different social status. The social status of the individual pig was determined by the outcome of social ranking fights and food competition tests....

Agonistic behaviour during experimental social encounters between 2 unfamiliar pigs was studied in 10-week-old pigs reared in pens of 3.5 m2 or 6.7 m2. In 3.5 m2 pens, pigs which became dominant in the experimental social encounters exhibited more abnormal agonistic behaviour than pigs reared in...
