Abstract

Background: Low space allowance (SA) and mixing may result in reduced growth performance (GP) and animal welfare issues because of adverse social behaviours directed to pen mates. This could be exacerbated in pens with single space feeders owing to social facilitation of feeding behaviour. The...

Abstract

Due to increasing litter size at weaning, the stocking density in the nursery phase has increased and feeder space reduced. Understanding how both factors work is potentially relevant to reduce the negative implications for piglet growth performance and welfare. A 3 × 4 factorial arrangement with...

Abstract

Background: Managing body weight (BW) variation is a challenge in farrow-to-finish farms implementing all-in/all-out (AIAO) production systems due to the lack of "off-site" facilities to segregate slow growing pigs (SGP). This case study investigated different approaches to managing BW variation in ...

Abstract

The objective of this experiment was to determine the effects of narasin (NAR; Skycis®; Elanco Animal Health, Greenfield, IN) or virginiamycin (VIR; Stafac®; Phibro Animal Health Corporation, Teaneck, NJ) on finishing pig growth performance and carcass characteristics. Two separate experiments were ...

Abstract

Based on results of a recent meta-analysis, we hypothesized that increased dietary Val, Ile, or Trp could correct possible amino acid interactions because of excess Leu in diets containing high levels of corn protein, namely dried distiller's grains with solubles (DDGS). A total of 1,200 pigs (PIC...

Abstract

Increasing space allowance and enhancing environmental enrichment are two approved solutions to improve pig welfare in modern housing systems, while limited research regarding their interactions could be found. To determine the proper stocking density for growing pigs under China's production...

Abstract

We studied the biological rhythms and social behavior of domestic pigs. We sampled 874 fattening pigs represent three breeds (Duroc, Landrace and Yorkshire) at the Xinda Livestock Company Ltd., Henan, China and studied feeding behavior using electronic feeding stations (EFS). We recorded the number ...
