Within the larger sow trial, a subset of gilts will be video recorded to allow an assessment of social hierarchies within the pen environments. These hierarchies will then be correlated with measures of gilt development and retention of sows to 3rd parity. Within this subset, relationships with hormonal changes will also be evaluated.
