Unacquainted pigs of all ages fight when mixed, resulting in body lesions, increased circulating stress hormones and increased heart rates. Aggression can therefore compromise pig welfare, and can also have an economic impact for the producer. Aggression in slaughter pigs can impact growth rates,...

Growth promoters or performance enhancers are used worldwide in pig production. For over 50 years, the use of antibiotics as feed additives proved to be effective by improving nutrient utilization leading to improved feed conversion ratio and better growth rate in most cases. In the EU, the use of...

The beneficial effects on pig health and growth performance as well as the economic benefits of using growth promoting and/or prophylactic antibiotics have been established. However, with worldwide concern over the use of antibiotics in animal agriculture, the prophylactic and growth promoting use...

A short overview is given of the history, breed characteristics and reproductive performance of the native Hungarian Mangalica [Mangalitsa] pig. Although this fat-type breed was the most important breed in Hungary until the mid-1950s, it nearly disappeared due to the breeding of modern commercial...

The negative effects of high temperatures on performance during sow lactation have been well documented. An increase in ambient temperature leads to a decrease in feed intake which in turn decreases milk production, increases the mobilization of body reserves and delays the return to oestrus of...

A modified protocol for the mobile nylon bag technique (MNBT) was used to determine the digestible energy (DE) content of 46 ingredients with potential to be used in pig diets. The feeds tested included nine cereal grains (barley, maize, oat, normal and high-fat oat groat, normal and low viscosity...

Great improvements in both growth rate and carcass composition have resulted from efficient breeding programmes employed in the pig industry in recent years. Selection strategies that emphasise high efficiency of lean growth (low feed intake/lean growth), however, result in a decline in voluntary...

The use of antimicrobial compounds in pig production provides demonstrated benefits, including improved health, higher production, and in some cases, reductions in food-borne pathogens. However, the use of antibiotics in livestock production, and in particular for growth enhancement, has been...

Magnesium (Mg) supplementation may improve pork quality through decreasing the acute stress response resulting from handling prior to slaughter, controlling intracellular calcium, and delaying the initiation of glycolysis by maintaining high energy phosphates post-mortem. Studies have focussed on...
