Abstract

Using 2 groups of gilts of 7 months of age A (6 pigs) and B (8 pigs) which had no contact with each other, different pairs of B gilts were mixed first with Group A for 4 days (first grouping), returned to B for 7 days, and then regrouped with Group A (second grouping) for 1 day. Aggressive...

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...
