Abstract The Dutch pig sector moves towards non castration in male piglets. This does not only require a solution to reduce and identify boar taint but also one to reduce typical "male behaviour" like mounting and aggression causing a threat to both animal welfare and performance. The objective was to reduce sexual behaviour and aggression in male pigs by management measures.
