Abstract At Pig Innovation Centre Sterksel it was investigated whether mounting and aggressive behaviour of boars can be reduced by: 1) green light or an increasing light schedule; 2) more total space per pen (24 pigs versus 12 pigs); 3) a hiding wall. Green light, increasing light schedule, more space and a hiding wall did not reduce mounting behaviour. Increasing light however did reduce aggressive behaviour around delivery of the pigs.
