Work description: PHD-student at the department of Animal Environment and Health.
My project is named "Effect of the housing environment and management on the incidence of tail biting in pigs". The project is part of the EU-financed project FareWellDock whichs aims to phase out the tail docking practice within EU. The Swedish part of the project primarily studies how straw can be used as enrichment for pigs, and how straw can be used in order to prevent tail biting without the tail docking procedure.
