Effects of single and group housing of pregnant sows on reproductive traits general health and behaviour 2nd communication evaluation of the housing systems by behavior traits



Zuechtungskunde 63(6): 478-485



Animal behaviour was recorded on video during more pregnancy period of 60 sows. The housing system effected "sitting" and "lying" behaviour. Behaviour also is influenced by pregnancy in both housing systems. Equal incidences of abnormal behaviour, considered as sham-chewing, were found in both housing systems.
