3 semester project: "Leverikten" Written assignment in continuation of the courses General zoology and Method in the project, see Description of these.


Bachelor project: "Slaughter pigs motivation to perform wallowing behavior, choice of wallowing media and preferred cooling method". The purpose of this report is: 1 To investigate finishers motivation for choosing access sølekar compared to that select access to food when they are exposed to a fixed term, high ambient temperature and activity. 2 To investigate whether pigs have a preference for water, mud or faeces as slush media. 3 To investigate whether pigs have a preference for a shower or sølekar to cool. The conclusion is: if pigs must have optimum opportunity for cooling, so the animals must have access to a sølekar containing mud. It is deemed to be important for dyene, to have access to this kind of cooling at high rumtemperarur and high activity. The reason for this assumption is that not even a much needed as feed intake in fasted pigs, can totally block out the need for cooling.


Theme Pigfarming: "Production for loose sows during mating and gestation period." The course provides the ability to conduct independent analyzes and evaluations of arbitrary problems in pig comprehensive subject areas Production management, feeding, handling, immediate environment and product quality and offer suggestions for solution (s). Problems may, for example. have originated in the primary pig or related industries and service areas or in the rest of society. Problems and solutions can be implemented in a comprehensive way. As a basis for achieving the overall objective of the course, emphasis is placed on understanding of science concepts, theories, principles and methods of the subject areas, as well as a comprehensive understanding between the areas. It is thus essential to be able to demonstrate the application of the understanding of the technical analyzes and syntheses score. That key question will be how production management, feeding, handling and the community works on production performance, including product quality, and how the correlations are within factors and goals. It also has another course with the question of what limits the theories, Principles and their use in practice.


Written assignment in continuation of the course theme Pig: "The welfare of group-housed sows during farrowing." The report addresses the following issue: "What affects the welfare of the loose sow during farrowing the opportunity to perform nesting behavior and to have access to nesting material? And will the sows are able to perform nesting behavior, and have access to nesting material cause an increased risk of crushing of piglets? "The issue seeks to answer from the review of literature. Assuming that the nesting behavior can be divided into two parts because the pig will be motivated to perform the first part of redebygningsad6erden, whether there is access to nests building material or not. The second part of the nesting behavior is, however, dependent on access to nesting material to be expressed. If no nesting material present, the first part of the behavior continue until farrowing, instead of letting other part of the behavior to be expressed. Can nesting behavior not divided, or offering the export of the first part of the behavior stimuli to motivate for the second part of the behavior, the whole behavior inelastic, but will be dependent on access to nesting material for the animal to perform the behavior and thus fa drain the motivation for behavior . In both cases, the pig will, if there is no access to the prepared material, experience frustration as a result of behavior as she is motivated not be carried out. It will, thus, that there is no access to nesting material, result in a reduction in the welfare of the sow. In this report examined trials of group-housed sows during farrowing, provides no evidence that the sow has the ability to perform nesting behavior and have access to nesting material, in itself results in more death squeezed pigs.


Fur Production: The course illustrates the theoretical / practical aspects of fur within the subjects: Species and strains, reproductive physiology, reproduction and breeding practices farvemutanter and coat quality, energy / nutrient requirements and standards, feed materials, including description, technology and quality, disease and disease elimination, skinning and fur dressing and design and operation of fur farms including legislation. This knowledge can be used to analyze and solve important tasks in relation to primary production including advisory and utilities. They have mastered the principles and routines in the live quality grading and leather dressing.


Poultry breeding and nutrition: Assessment of the main problems related to spiseæg, hatching eggs and the different types of poultry for slaughter, such as: chickens, turkeys, ducks, geese and other poultry species. Are made primarily for Danish production and conditions of this production. The assessment of the issues involved nutrition including nutrition physiological conditions, genetic variation and analysis of needs and opportunities to meet these biologically and economically optimal. Also included assessment of product quality both as a foodstuff and as a raw material for the food industry. Knowledge about nutrition and breeding of poultry and a information about the production organization must be used to analyze and understand the contexts of production and planning of a production. This will also allow a systematic analysis of the situation in a herd of unsatisfactory production results.


Sheep, goat, deer production and breeding: The course imparts knowledge and understanding of significant practical and theoretical issues in breeding and production of these species, product quality and marketing, and production the importance of nature conservation. The emphasis is thus on both extensive and intensive commercial production under temperate climate conditions. There, the individual animal species and breeds special properties, production and ratios. Requirements and impact on the environment both on the grass and in the shed. The course provides the ability to: understand and evaluate the biological and technical prerequisites for obtaining a biologically and economically rational production, review and preparation of feed, production and breeding plans, providing evidence-based proposals for changes in the production process in order to achieve a desired production targets .


Thesis: "Killing of piglets due to Laying on them in outdoor pigs". Outdoor pig production is associated with an increased loss of piglets in the period from farrowing to weaning, and a large portion of the pig that is lost during this period, die as a result of crushing. The report concludes that there is an increased risk of crushing in outdoor pig production, and that a significant proportion of pigs killed down, not previously weakened by other causes. It is the sow's ability to exhibit risky behavior, due to the different stiudformning, there are outdoor production, in conjunction with the fact that there may be cold in the environment and its influence on whether the pigs staying at Risk is the reason that is an increased risk of crushing in outdoor pig production. Climatic conditions its influence on the risk of crushing by the extreme conditions that affect both the pig's risk of being put to death, as the sow's risk of death put the pig. The climate has an influence on the risk of crushing by the cold conditions or if danger nest becomes moist, affecting pigs' likely to remain at risk. The climate has an influence by affecting the pigs 'ability to maintain body temperature, and thus the pigs' vitality and, by extension, pig behavior. Keep danger nest dry, the pigs, however, be able to maintain body temperature, and therefore will not remain at risk, even when the temperature of the external environment are low.


Farm buildings, Pig: The course imparts knowledge and understanding of key issues, theories, methods and analytical tools for the primary pig production physical environment as well as their planning, updating, design and function. Problems as they occur in common pig production plant, to be identified, concrete, reinforced and described, including coming collection and processing of relevant knowledge, and then put forward and evaluate solutions and develop an action plan. The problem and possible. solutions must be adapted to the different factors influence on an overall basis and therefore take account of society's ethical and environmental matters, the current target for pig production nationally and in particular the objective of the farmer's pig production. Solution models' influence on secondary production economy must be sought including concrete respectively fixed costs and variable costs for current evaluated pig production systems. A major objective for the course is to provide a practical insight exemplified in terms of a viable complete pig, including the feasibility of implementing new production theories, the use of new feed compositions and allocation methods as well as new regulatory and konsumentkrav for the housing of pigs, etc.
