Abstract

Socialisation is a process in which animals interact with unfamiliar conspecifics, that allows them to develop their social abilities. Socialisation has been proposed as a method in pig husbandry to increase piglets' social skills and reduce conspecific aggression, which is a major welfare issue in ...

Abstract

The pig appeasing pheromone (PAP) applied in spray has shown to be effective in reducing the frequency of aggression and the stress response of young and adult pigs under experimental conditions. This preliminary experiment investigates the effect of the PAP in a slow releasing block on the...

Abstract

Ensuring welfare in captive wild animal populations is important not only for ethical and legal reasons, but also to maintain healthy individuals and populations. An increased level of social behaviors such as aggression can reduce welfare by causing physical damage and chronic stress to animals....

Abstract

The food intake and growth of pigs are affected by both physical and social constraints influencing feeding behaviour. Feeder design has received some empirical study, but only limited systematic scientific investigation despite its importance for both intake and feed wastage. Feeding space...

Abstract

The fact that consumption of normally palatable foods is affected by stress in both humans and rats suggests a means to assess hedonic reaction in non-verbal animals. However, little is known about anhedonia and stress in productive animals such as pigs. Thus we examined the separate effects of...

Abstract

Feeding behavior in dairy cattle has a significant impact on feed efficiency, which is important for increasing the profitability of livestock and, at the same time, reducing the environmental impact. Feeding behavior can be measured by feeding time, meal duration, meal frequency, feeding rate, and ...

Abstract

Measures taken on animals are subject to variations and their reliability may represent one of their main limitations when used in a welfare assessment tool. Test-retest reliability refers to the likelihood that the same results will be obtained if the assessment is repeated by the same observer....

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...
