AbstractFull Text

High Tryptophan (Trp) supplementation has been shown to reduce deleterious behaviour in laying hens, however this effect is not established in other species. Moreover, Trp may be used by bacteria for the synthesis of indolic compounds that have negative consequence on host behaviour, and we...

AbstractFull Text

The social behaviour of animals, which is partially controlled by genetics, is one of the factors involved in their adaptation to large breeding groups. To better understand the relationships between different behavioural components (social and sexual motivation, fear and aggression) and production ...

AbstractFull Text

Social interactions among pigs raised in the same pen affect their individual performance. The genetic consequences on welfare of selection for pigs having a beneficial effect on the growth rate of penmates were estimated. Firstly, a positive correlation between direct and associative effects for...

AbstractFull Text

Two batches of 120 growing pigs were used to study the effects of the group composition (M: 10 males; F: 10 females; MF: 5 males and 5 females) and the slaughter strategy (one (1D) or two (2D) departures per pen) in a 3×2 factorial design. In the 2D treatment, the four heaviest pigs were...

AbstractFull Text

Growth performance, carcass quality, behaviour and general condition of crossbred (Pietrain × Large White) × (Large White × Landrace) boars, barrows and gilts were compared from a batch of pigs fed ad libitum and group-housed both during the postweaning (eight-nine pigs/pen) and the fattening (six...

Abstract

One of the major objectives of domestication is the selection of lines with low aggressiveness and high growth potential. Analyses of domesticated animal traits often illustrate numerous changes in behaviour due to the rearing environment. However there are few reports of these changes in fish. In...
