Book Description :

Alternative Swine Management Systems examines technologically humane substitutions for swine production, focusing specifically on hoop structure systems. Benefits of these alternatives include enhanced animal welfare and reduced capital cost. From small holders involved in low input pig farms, to larger commercial operations, this book instructs users on new technology to improve the quality of animal production, animal welfare and environmental protection points. Offers economically efficient, environmentally stable, and socially acceptable alternatives to swine farming Extends regions and climactic conditions for any swine farm location Provides an ideal resource for animal and veterinary science researchers and engineers, as well as swine farm management

Book Description :

Can we improve the health and welfare of livestock while increasing production? Can we maintain animal biodiversity in the face of increasing demands for resources and expanding agriculture? Can we use animal behaviour to reduce the carbon footprint of livestock production? Applied ethology is a young, multidisciplinary science that is relevant to these and other pressing issues. This book celebrates the history and science of applied ethology, and commemorates the 50th anniversary of the International Society for Applied Ethology. Through themes such as human-animal interaction, play behaviour, cognition, evolutionary theory and the relationship between applied ethology and animal welfare science, the book examines why ethologists are so passionate about their work, and why this field remains more exciting now than ever. Chapter authors include world renowned ethologists such as Don Broom, Ian Duncan, Ruth Newberry, and many others. The history of the ISAE and development of the field is presented with engaging profiles of founding members and pioneers in the field. New methods and emerging issues in behaviour research are discussed, along with the development of ethology around the globe. The book concludes with thoughts on future directions for applied ethology in addressing global issues of animal production, welfare, biodiversity, and the role of the ISAE. The book provides an exciting overview of this emerging field of science, and is intended for academics, students and anyone who takes pleasure in observing animals.

Book Description :

Life Cycle Assessments (LCAs) are quantitative analyses of complex systems for evaluation of impacts and risk associated with management decisions. LCAs can be effective tools for determining comparative advantages of management strategies across specific impact concern. In this study, life cycle assessments of pork production management alternatives was performed. The alternative management practices included in this study were production of entire males (boars), use of pens for gestation housing, immunocastration, production without growth promoting antimicrobials, production without growth promoting and preventive antimicrobials, and production without ractopamine. These LCAs evaluated the impact of each management strategy on greenhouse gas emission (GHG), cumulative energy use, and cumulative water use compared to the common baseline. Each alternative management strategy was simulated in Pig Production Environmental Footprint (PPEF) model by varying key variables. Life cycle inventory inputs for unit process created using PPEF model were used for SimaPro V7.3 (Pre' Consultants, The Netherlands), an LCA modeling program. The functional unit for the analysis was one kilogram live weight at the farm gate. Influence of temperature on impact categories was evaluated by testing all alternate management practices at five temperature regimes. While, temperature influenced the changes to the impact categories, hypothesis testing was performed for alternative management practices for scenario at Wright County, Iowa that used typical meteorological year to control temperature inside the barn. LCAs of alternative management practices yielded a range of results. Increase in GHG emissions, cumulative energy use, and cumulative water use were observed for no growth promoting antimicrobials (1.559, 1.746, and 1.038% respectively), no growth promoting or preventive antimicrobials (17.321, 18.399, and 15.577% respectively), and removal of ractopamine (6.515, 4.867, and 7.518% respectively) scenarios. For entire males scenarios GHG emission and cumulative energy use increased by 2.092 and 3.748% but cumulative water use decreased by 2.294%. Lower GHG emissions, cumulative energy use, and cumulative water use were observed for gestation pens (0.973, 1.499, and 0.972% respectively) and immunocastration (2.385, 2.567, and 2.963% respectively) scenarios. These changes could be concluded with at least 75% confidence only for lower water consumption for entire males, decreased GHG emissions and water consumption for immunocastration, increased cumulative energy consumption for no growth promoting antimicrobials, increase in all three impact categories for no growth promoting or preventive antimicrobials, and increased GHG emissions, cumulative energy and cumulative water consumption for removal of ractopamine scenarios. A null hypothesis that changing management practices in the pork production in the US does not affect impact category metrics used for sustainability assessment was rejected using one tailed paired t-test at P
