Abstract

This study emphasizes the difference in pig crushing mortality rates in various outdoor farrowing hut types and suggests that huts with a larger floor space may help reduce preweaning pig crushing. Mothering ability by the sow may be particularly important in outdoor systems where the sows have greater freedom and mobility.
