Pig Aggression

By The Scottish Agricultural College - Under modern commercial conditions, pigs are mixed with unfamiliar animals several times during their lives, and this leads to aggressive behaviour such as fighting and bullying. The aggression that occurs at mixing results in skin lesions. Losers of fights show signs of social stress, such as trying to escape from their attackers and reduced activity. This article provides the Introduction to work done at the SAC on Pig Aggression and links to the other pages of the report.
