Ethological design of a practicable farrowing pen

, : Ethological design of a practicable farrowing pen. Proceedings of the International Congress on Applied Ethology held in Berlin, 1993: 238-242

A farrowing pen which takes into consideration the behaviour of the sow and piglets is described. The pen (2.6 x 2.7 m) is divided into a nest and an activity area. All 53 sows tested farrowed in the nest area and defaecated and urinated in the activity area. The sows and piglets coordinated their behaviour to prevent crushing effectively.
