  1. 'Libido' in the larger farm animals: a review

    | Contributor(s):: Wodzicka-Tomaszewska, M., Kilgour, R., Ryan, M.

    The term 'libido', first used by Freud to refer to the force by which the sexual instinct is represented in the mind, has become more and more used to refer to some aspects of sexual behaviour in large domestic animals. From being a wide, rather imprecise term, it has come to be defined...

  2. A review of the effects of prostaglandins on sexual behavior in boars

    | Contributor(s):: Estienne, Mark J.

    Artificial insemination (AI) is the primary method of breeding sows in many countries worldwide. In general, semen for AI is collected using the gloved hand technique from boars trained to mount an artificial sow, although automated collection systems have been developed and are in use on some...

  3. A review of the welfare consequences of surgical castration in piglets and the evaluation of non-surgical methods

    | Contributor(s):: Prunier, A., Bonneau, M., Borell, E. H. von, Cinotti, S., Gunn, M., Fredriksen, B., Giersing, M., Morton, D. B., Tuyttens, F. A. M., Velarde, A.

  4. Agonistic behaviour, skin lesions and activity pattern of entire male, female and castrated male finishing pigs

    | Contributor(s):: Bunger, B., Schrader, L., Schrade, H., Zacharias, B.

    Fattening of intact boars is the least invasive alternative to the detrimental welfare effects of surgical castration of piglets. However, beside problems such as boar taint the divergent agonistic and sexual behaviour of boars may impair the pigs' welfare during fattening. To evaluate the...

  5. Alimentation et idéologie : la place du sanglier et du porc à l'Ã

    | Contributor(s):: Vila, Emmanuelle, Dalix, Anne-Sophie

  6. Assessment of living conditions in wild boars by analysis of oxidative stress markers

    | Contributor(s):: Esposito, Luigi, Tafuri, Simona, Cocchia, Natascia, Fasanelli, Roberto, Piscopo, Nadia, Lamagna, Barbara, Eguren, Vincente, Amici, Andrea, Iorio, Eugenio Luigi, Ciani, Francesca

  7. Associations between the dominance status and sexual development, skin lesions or feeding behaviour of intact male pigs

    | Contributor(s):: Parois, Severine, Larzul, Catherine, Prunier, Armelle

    In boars, social relationships could influence pubertal development and feeding behaviour. The objectives of the present study were to determine the relationships between behaviour (agonistic, mounting and feeding behaviours), plasma sex steroids (oestradiol, testosterone) and fat androstenone. A...

  8. Aujeszky's Disease and Hepatitis E Viruses Transmission between Domestic Pigs and Wild Boars in Corsica: Evaluating the Importance of Wild/Domestic Interactions and the Efficacy of Management Measures

    Full-text: Available

    | Contributor(s):: Francois Charrier, Sophie Rossi, Ferran Jori, Oscar Maestrini, Celine Richomme, Francois Casabianca, Christian Ducrot, Johan Jouve, Nicole Pavio, Marie-Frederique Le Potier

    Wildlife species as reservoirs of infectious pathogens represent a serious constraint in the implementation of disease management strategies. In the Mediterranean island of Corsica, the dynamics of hepatitis E virus (HEV) and Aujeszky’s disease virus (ADV) are suspected to be influenced...

  9. Availability of camera trapping for behavioural analysis: An example with wild boar (Sus scrofa)

    | Contributor(s):: Kovács, Virág, Újváry, Dóra, Szemethy, László

    The animal welfare is maybe the main factor in livestock breeding, including keeping wild animals. In order not have any problems (health, economic), animals behaviour analyses with cameras can be an appropriate and relatively cheap solution. The present study aims to show the difference between...

  10. Beasts in the jungle (or wherever)

    | Contributor(s):: Ritvo, Harriet

  11. Behavior, production results and meat quality of intact boars and gilts housed in unmixed groups: A comparative study

    | Contributor(s):: Vanheukelom, Valerie, Van Beirendonck, Sanne, Van Thielen, Jos, Driessen, Bert

    Surgical castration of male pigs is a practice that will probably be abandoned in Europe in the future because of general protest against pain in animals and a growing concern on (farm) animal welfare. Rearing entire males will therefore inevitably be integrated in the pig sector. In the present...

  12. Belgian consumers' attitude towards surgical castration and immunocastration of piglets

    | Contributor(s):: Vanhonacker, F., Verbeke, W., Tuyttens, F. A. M.

    In the vast majority of European countries, piglets are surgically castrated in order to eliminate the risk of boar taint, an odour or flavour that can be present when pork from entire males is cooked. However, surgical castration is the subject of much debate and criticism as a result of its...

  13. Boar presence reduces fighting in mixed slaughter-weight pigs

    Full-text: Available

    | Contributor(s):: Grandin, T., Bruning, J.

    The article studies the presence of boars in reducing fighting in the groups of pigs therefore reducing skin blemishes.

  14. Comparative assessment of faecal microbial composition and metabonome of swine, farmers and human control

    | Contributor(s):: Tan, S. C., Chong, C. W., Yap, I. K. S., Thong, K. L., Teh, C. S. J.

  15. Consumer attitudes towards alternatives to piglet castration without pain relief in organic farming: qualitative results from Germany

  19. Effect of Birth Weight and Human Socialization on Reproductive Performance of Adult A.I. Boars.

    | Contributor(s):: Nikhol Elizabeth Dysart

    The objective of this study was to examine the effect of birth weight and socialization prior to puberty on reproductive performance of A.I. boars. Twenty boars were randomly allocated to a factorial arrangement of treatments including birth weight (BW: High or Low) and socialization to...

  20. Effects of artificial boar stimuli on the expression of oestrus in sows

    | Contributor(s):: Gerritsen, R., Langendijk, P., Soede, N., Kemp, B.

    In this study, the effects of artificial boar stimuli on oestrus expression in sows were compared to that of a boar. During consecutive cycles, 12 gilts and 38 sows were subjected to one of the three treatments. A Back-Pressure-Test (BPT) was carried out twice daily in the presence of a robot...
