Ear skin temperature as indicator of well-being

A paper describing Heidi Mai-Lis Andersen's study about the use of an ear skin temperature sensor as indicator of well-being in slaughter pigs has been submitted to Applied Animal Behaviour Science. Heidi is employed in the research and development department at SKOV A/S, and the paper is part of her Ph.D. thesis. SKOV A/S is working in the field of climate control and production monitoring for animal agricultural production, and collaborates with several research institutes. During the final part of her Ph.D. study Heidi has been working in our research group. As a Ph.D. student she was affiliated with the Royal Veterinary and Agricultural University in Copenhagen. Or, since January 1, the Faculty of Life Sciences at the University of Copenhagen, Department of Large Animal Sciences, following the recent restructuring of the Danish research institutes.
