Abstract

At 63 days of age, 4 specific-pathogen-free (SPF) piglets from a litter of 8 piglets (Group A) were moved to the pen where a litter of 4 SPF piglets (Group B) were housed and were reared together for 13 days. The remaining 4 piglets of the litter of 8 piglets were not moved but reared for 13 days...

Abstract

Groups of adult rabbits in which stable dominance hierarchies had been developed were used in the experiments. In experiment one, 9 low-ranking and 9 high-ranking rabbits were given the choice between a group-pen and a solitary pen; the solitary pen was the same size (2.8 m2) and had the same...

Abstract

Increasing cage size was proposed as a means to encourage exercise and play (socialization) to improve welfare of kennel dogs. 11-month-old, female, purpose-bred Beagles, housed 4 to a cage, were videotaped for 15 h on 10 different dates, resulting in 5 videotapes recorded for a smaller cage size...

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

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...
