Assessment of sub-grouping behaviour in pigs housed at different group sizes
Contributor(s):: Turner, S. P., Horgan, G. W., Edwards, S. A.
The group size within which a dominance hierarchy can function without modification is finite. Sub-grouping behaviour may fragment a large group into smaller units in which a dominance hierarchy may be preserved. This could be achieved by spatial localization, as indicated by the existence of...
