Abstract

<br>The use of a maternal pheromone positively affects the welfare of weaned pigs. Fewer pigs lose weight and exhibit less aggressive behaviors, improving the health and welfare of weaned pigs. This work shows that providing biologically-relevant olfactory enrichment to pigs can impact the health and welfare of pigs and the economics of the swine industry.
