Carefulness and flexibility of lying down behaviour in sows during 24 h post-partum in relation to piglet position
| Contributor(s):: Pokorna, Z., Illmann, G., Simeckova, M., Chaloupkova, H., Kratinova, P.
This study focused on sow lying down behaviour and on the flexibility of her pre-lying behaviour, both of which are supposed to be crucially linked to piglet crushing. First, during 24 h after the birth of the first piglet (BFP) changes in the frequency of standing-to-lying events were...
