Abstract

Group housing provides horses with social contact, a lack of which is associated with health and behavior problems. Despite the benefits of group housing for horses, horse owners are concerned about aggression and resulting injuries. This study focused on agonistic and affiliative interactions in a ...

Abstract

Agonistic behavior in group-housed male mice is a recurring problem in many animal research facilities. Common management procedures, such as the removal of aggressors, are moderately successful but often fail, owing to recurrence of aggressive behavior among cagemates. Studies have incorporated...

Abstract

This article discusses the current knowledge on housing and management to minimize tail biting in piglets such as early socialization of piglets to avoid social ranking; simultaneous access to high quality feeds and roughage with optimum water supply; separate areas for lying and defecation;...

Abstract

Owing to their naturally aggressive behaviour, male mice are often housed individually in toxicity studies. However, several publications advocate group-housing of mice to enable normal social behaviour and interactions between the animals. This refinement project aimed at facilitate group-housing...

Cover for Social conditions.

In this chapter we describe how the constrained structure of managed social groups may lead to the occurrence of animal welfare problems and discuss potential solutions. Solving socially induced welfare problems is particularly challenging because it is usually more difficult to predict how animals ...

Abstract

Two alternative rat cages and their effect on home cage physical and social activity were evaluated in male Sprague Dawley (SPD) and Spontaneously Hypertensive (SH) rats for 10 weeks. Rats were housed strainwise in pairs in ST cages, in groups of eight in Enriched Rat Cage System (ERC) equipped...

Abstract

Social interactions among individuals are common both in plants and animals. With social interactions, the trait value of an individual may be influenced by the genes of its interacting partners, a phenomenon known as indirect genetic effects (IGE). An IGE is heritable effect of an individual on...

AbstractFull Text

The objective of the study was to assess the effects of rearing space on behaviour (social and aggressive behaviour), performance (growth rate and carcass characteristics) and meat quality (pH, colour, water holding capacity and shear force) of growing pigs. 120 pigs were reared to slaughter (up to ...
