Tail biting is a syndrome caused by stress such as density, heat variations, etc..
The economical and welfare consequences of tail biting are important. In a study conducted by Niemi et al.*, they reported that, at 10% of tail biting lesions, the economic loss is as 1.6 % of carcass value.
Taking a good care of the external factors is a must-have if you want to keep your pigs with an entire tail.
However, even the best farmer can still face tail biting outbreak because of the animal itself. Indeed, the sensibility to stress is an individual parameter.

“As soon as we began using the product, we noticed a significant decrease in the number of animals showing signs of nervousness. Sometimes, you don’t realize there’s an illness, and stress causes underlying symptoms to appear. Our animals are therefore much calmer and the mortality rate during transport has decreased.”**
