Abstract

Production systems for fattening pigs have been characterized over the last 2 decades by rising farm sizes coupled with increasing group sizes. These developments resulted in a serious public discussion regarding animal welfare and health in these intensive production systems. Even though large...

Abstract

The ability to assess emotionality is important within animal welfare research. Yet, for farm animals, few tests of emotionality have been well validated. Here we investigated the construct validity of behavioural measures of pig emotionality in an open-field test by manipulating the experiences of ...

Abstract

By definition, social behaviour is comprised of those patterns of behaviour that involve 2 or more members of a species. Thus, social behaviour includes sexual behaviour and parental behaviour. However, the emphasis of this manuscript will be on those behaviours that relate to the formation and...

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

Two studies were carried out on the effect of visitors on mixed-breed goats, llama, and Vietnamese pot-bellied pigs housed in a petting zoo display within a safari park. In the first study we investigated the effect of the presence and density of visitors on the animals' behaviour and in the...

Abstract

A welfare assessment method was built, based on criteria related to behaviour, lesion scores and human/animal interactions, and tested thereafter in two main types of farms differing by their type of floor: either concrete, fully or partially slatted (C; n=42) or straw bedding (S; n=40)....

AbstractFull Text

Pig welfare research are numerous but mostly concerns industrial systems. The spontaneous sows's behaviour is still misrecognized. We studied an open air organic system in south of France (Hérault) of 48 sows, 4 boars, 450 fattening pigs. This study aimed to understanding the behaviour of sows...

Abstract

The aim of his study was to compare the behavior of porkers maintained on deep bedding form sawdust and traditional straw. The observation of 36 individuals divided into 4 groups (two for each breeding system) was conducted. Time of duration of different forms of behavior (food and water intake,...

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...
