dc.description.abstract <p>Loss of piglets due to crushing is an unnecessary loss that creates both a financial and welfare concern for the swine industry. Sows in the wild lie more quietly after farrowing compared with sows in farrowing crates. The restless behavior of the sow in a farrowing crate increases the chances that she will crush her offspring. Data collected during this study indicate that the discomfort a sow feels associated with lying on a hard surface after farrowing can not be relieved with ibuprofen. This discomfort causes her to change positions more frequently, increasing the chances that she will crush her piglets. Emphasis needs to focus on allowing the post-parturient sow to rest quietly if a decrease in piglet crushing is to be realized.</p>
