dc.description.abstract Groups of 6, 12, or 24 pigs averaging 37 pounds each were assigned to pens where each pig had 3.85 square feet of floor space for a 4-week feeding period. Pigs in groups of 12 gained significantly slower and showed a much higher incidence of tail-biting than groups of 6 or 24. Feed efficiency was similar for all groups. In groups of 12 three pigs per feeder space gave the same results as six pigs per feeder space. en_US
