Sows that remained at the trough received a score of zero. For the sows that withdrew, the experimenter lowered their hand on the feeding trough and the animal received a score equivalent to the number of seconds it took for her to return to the trough. The test finished after 10 seconds. Responses to handling: A number of studies have used behavioural responses to handling as a measure of fear. Lawrence et al. (1991) included a number of elements to assess individual behavioural characteristics.
These postures can occur both in the absence of suitable bedding/foraging substrates and in situations of over-crowding (Fraser, 1975; Buchenauer, 1981; Pearce and Paterson, 1993). g. Weissenbock and Dubey, 1993). In sum, apathy in pigs can be difficult to diagnose in that it concerns the absence of normal activity and responsiveness patterns. However a more positive manifestation On farm monitoring of pig welfare 47 Françoise Wemelsfelder seems to lie in a marked social withdrawal of individual animals, a general lethargy of movement and dullness of activity, prolonged hunched motionless postures, and perhaps, as part of the overall stress syndrome, sudden outbursts of aggression.
We suggest that the assessment of apathy should involve a combination of quantitative and qualitative methods of behavioural observation. Quantitative methods of behavioural observation: Quantitative assessments of apathy should address the proportion of pigs that sleep, lie down, display some form of motionless sitting or standing, appear isolated from their litter mates, or do not show normal responsiveness to novel stimuli. Particular attention should be paid to the response of pigs, either individually or in groups, to the approach and close presence of an assessor.
