Abstract

Data collected during this study show that an object that has the smell of the sows udder, a relatively soft texture, and warmth is more effective than a heat lamp alone at drawing piglets away from the sow and into a safe area. Much more research is necessary to perfect the design and increase the probablity that pigs will use this attractant soon after birth.
