Abstract

Seventy-eight sows were combined in groups of 4 or 5 animals, of which 26 were involved more than once; thus 106 events at 23 different dates were available for statistical analysis. The animals were grouped (distributed over 1 yr) in a paved loose housing area of 270 m2 on 2 d for 2 h each; on day ...

Abstract

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

The effects of amperozide on sow performance when administered as a single i.m. injection of 1 mg/kg (Hogpax) at the time of either farrowing or weaning, or on both occasions were evaluated. Treatments were given during the rearing of 2 consecutive litters with each individual sow remaining on the...

Abstract

Locomotive, feeding and social behaviours were compared in sows housed under different systems (single housing, group housing with either individual feeding pens or transponder). Single housing allows almost no movement. In group housing, distances covered were greater with transponder feeding as...

Abstract

In Trial 1, 120 6-week-old pigs were used to investigate the effect of amperozide 1mg/kg i.m. and azaperone 2mg/kg on agonistic behaviour and performance. Fighting behaviour was measured by counting bite and slash marks on each pig before mixing and at 8, 26 and 48 h after penning. Each pig was...

Abstract

Plasma free-corticosteroid concentrations, aggressive behaviour and motivation to interact socially and explore a novel environment were observed in 39 female pigs housed either in groups of 4-7 animals or in tether stalls over 2 parities. Gilts in tethers in their first pregnancy had significantly ...

Abstract

The influence of 4 handling treatments on behaviour, growth and free corticosteroid concentrations was studied in 32 young female pigs housed in individual pens. The pleasant treatment involved stroking the pig whenever it approached the experimenter, the unpleasant treatment involved forcing the...

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...
