  3. Interaction between sows’ aggressiveness post mixing and skin lesions recorded several weeks later

    | Contributor(s):: Tönepöhl, Björn, Appel, Anne K., Voß, Barbara, König von Borstel, Uta, Gauly, Matthias

    Group housing of pigs leads inevitably to more or less serious agonistic interactions during the establishment of the social rank order of the group. In order to reduce the number of severe agonistic interactions and thus the negative effects on well-being and performance, the use of genetic...

  4. Maximum permissible load for Yonaguni ponies (Japanese landrace horses) trotting over a short, straight course

    | Contributor(s):: Matsuura, A., Mano, H., Irimajiri, M., Hodate, K.

    This study aimed to determine the load-bearing capacity of trotting Yonaguni ponies using gait analysis. The Yonaguni pony is one of the Japanese landrace horses, and has normal gait characteristics when trotting. As a breed they are small in stature and hence susceptible to the effect of the...

  5. Effect of different management techniques to enhance colostrum intake on piglets' growth and mortality

    | Contributor(s):: Muns, R., Manteca, X., Gasa, J.

    An experiment was conducted to study the effect four different management techniques to enhance colostrum intake had on piglet and litter performance. Treatments were performed on piglets born weighing 1.30 kg or less (SP) within 6 h of birth: control group (CON); split-nursing of the litter for...

  6. Predicting time spent on different behavioural activities from physicochemical properties of fibrous diets in finishing pigs

    | Contributor(s):: Bakare, A. G., Ndou, S. P., Madzimure, J., Chimonyo, M.

    The objective of the present study was to predict time spent on different behavioural activities by finishing pigs, using physicochemical measurements of fibrous feed. Eighty four Large White * Landrace barrows with 80.54.7 kg body weight (BW) at the beginning of the experiment were used. Feed...

  7. Confined and sustainable? A critique of recent pastoral policy for reindeer herding in Finnmark, northern Norway

  9. An initial investigation into the effects of isolation and enrichment on the welfare of laboratory pigs housed in the PigTurn system, assessed using tear staining, behaviour, physiology and haematology

    | Contributor(s):: DeBoer, S. P., Garner, J. P., McCain, R. R., Lay, D. C., Jr., Eicher, S. D., Marchant-Forde, J. N.

    In some parts of the world, the laboratory pig ( Sus scrofa) is often housed in individual, sterile housing which may impose stress. Our objectives were to determine the effects of isolation and enrichment on pigs housed within the PigTurn - a novel penning system with automated blood sampling -...

  10. The Wild Horse and Burro Issue, 1982

    | Contributor(s):: Wolfe, Michael L.

  11. Dueling land ethics: uncovering agricultural stakeholder mental models to better understand recent land use conversion

    | Contributor(s):: Turner, B. L., Wuellner, M., Nichols, T., Gates, R.

    The aim of this paper is to investigate how alternative land ethics of agricultural stakeholders may help explain recent land use changes. The paper first explores the historical development of the land ethic concept in the United States and how those ethics have impacted land use policy and use...

  12. Special Issue: Ethical aspects of large-scale land acquisition in developing countries

    | Contributor(s):: Voget-Kleschin, L., Ott, K.

    This special issue aims at investigating large-scale land acquisitions (LaSLA) from an ethical perspective. It encompasses four case studies, namely the case of Limphasa Sugar Corporation in Malawi, financed by a Malawian and some British Investors; Chinese-based land-acquisitions in Cambodia; a...

  13. The politics and ethics of land concessions in rural Cambodia

    | Contributor(s):: Neef, A., Touch, S., Chiengthong, J.

    In rural Cambodia the rampant allocation of state land to political elites and foreign investors in the form of "Economic Land Concessions (ELCs)" - estimated to cover an area equivalent to more than 50% of the country's arable land - has been associated with encroachment on farmland, community...

  14. The welfare of growing pigs in five different production systems in France and Spain: assessment of health

    | Contributor(s):: Temple, D., Courboulay, V., Velarde, A., Dalmau, A., Manteca, X.

  16. Farmers' perceptions of livestock, agriculture, and natural resources in the rural Ethiopian highlands

    | Contributor(s):: Tschopp, R., Aseffa, A., Schelling, E., Zinsstag, J.

    Increasing human and livestock populations in Ethiopia are leading to a growing demand for food and feed. Cereal cropping is highly prioritized at the cost of the livestock subsector and the environment. Grazing land is decreasing, leading to overstocking and overgrazing of pastures, thus fueling...

  17. Agro-biodiversity conservation in Europe: ethical issues

    | Contributor(s):: Negri, V.

    While it is commonly acknowledged that the ecosystemic, and the inter- and intra-specific diversity of "natural" life is under threat of being irremediably lost, there is much less awareness that the diversity in agro-ecosystems is also under threat. This paper is focused on the biodiverse...

  18. A note on the effect of gestation housing environment on approach test measures in gilts

    | Contributor(s):: Marchant-Forde, J. N., Bradshaw, R. H., Marchant-Forde, R. M., Broom, D. M.

    Systems' welfare evaluation, including behavioural testing, is becoming increasingly popular in farm animal assurance schemes. The aims of this study were to investigate whether fairly short-term exposure to gestation housing systems, which varied in physical, environmental and human-input...

    | Contributor(s):: Wischner, D., Kemper, N., Stamer, E., Hellbruegge, B., Presuhn, U., Krieter, J.

    The aim of this study was to analyse different behavioural traits of sows to describe posture changes and to determine the influences of these traits on piglet losses. The behaviour of 386 German Landrace sows (with 438 pure-bred litters) was videotaped continuously starting 12 h prepartum until...
