Effects of Transport Duration on the Stress Response and Pork Quality of Pigs

Improvements in truck design and optimisation of handling and transport practices will reduce most of the stress experienced by pigs during long transport, according to a report in the 2011 Annual Report from the Prairie Swine Centre. The study was carried out by J. Brown, Y.M Seddon and H. Gonyou of the Prairie Swine Centre Inc., T. Crowe (University of Sakatchewan), T. Widowski and R. Bergeron (University of Guelph) and L. Faucitano (Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada).
