AbstractFull Text

Two batches of 120 pigs (10 pigs/pen) were used to investigate the effect of four different objects on the behavior and body condition during the fattening period. In previous trials, an object (T) made of three plastic pipes strengthened with a chain and fixed to the floor was considered a good...
