ROMERO, MH; SANCHEZ, JA  e  HOYOS, R. Factors associated with the frequency of non-ambulatory pigs during transport. Arch. med. vet. [online]. 2016, vol.48, n.2, pp.191-198. ISSN 0301-732X.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0301-732X2016000200009.

The objective of this study was to identify risk factors associated with the frequency of fatigued and injured pigs in a commercial slaughterhouse. A retrospective study was performed to evaluate 4,758 pig batches that were unloaded at a slaughterhouse during the years 2012, 2013 and 2014. The incidence of non-ambulatory pigs was 0.44%, 0.41%, and 0.5%, respectively. The characteristics of producer and the driver, type of truck, month, and the distance were risk factors for the incidence of non-ambulatory pigs. The high frequency of downer pigs from farms showed the absence of emergency slaughter protocols and lack of implementation of good transporting practices.

Palavras-chave : non-ambulatory pigs; stress; transport losses.
