Abstract In each of the 5 partner countries we asked 2-3 farmers to register early signs of tail biting according to a standard protocol during November and December 2016. The protocol was developed in close cooperation with groups of farmers. The observations were focused on tail posture, unusual activity and tail biting. The scores were given each day on pen level in a selection of rooms. The aim was to detect tail biting in its earliest stage and collect feedback from the farmers about the protocol and if it changed their daily inspection. The results will be described by country, summarized and followed by joint conclusions.
