Get me out of here! – New project at FBN investigates helping behavior in pigs

A pioneering project at the Research Institute for Farm Animal Biology (FBN) in Dummerstorf aims to answer these questions by using a novel design to study spontaneous helping behavior in pigs within their social groups.
