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

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...

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...

Abstract

The number of group-housed, non-lactating sows is increasing rapidly in Europe. However, systematic information of the between-sow variation in animal welfare related factors under various on-farm conditions is lacking. Indicators of feed intake, fear of humans and social behaviour in...

Abstract

In today's production systems, pigs raised for slaughter are mixed many times, resulting in stress and fighting. The negative consequences of mixing are probably more severe with entire males than with castrates, as they fight more. In this project, we studied a system without castration where...

AbstractFull Text

The objective of the study was to compare two treatments, a prototype object (Object) or a distribution of straw via a rack (Straw). Each treatment was assigned to three pens in two rooms comprising six pens of 7 m2. Each pen was composed of 5 castrated males and 5 females. The floor was made up of ...

Abstract

Group-housing of non-lactating sows is becoming increasingly widespread in commercial sow herds in European countries as a result of changed legislation. Group-housing may lead to individual variation in feed intake, stress and fear, which may impair the reproduction performance. However, whether...
