Abstract: The primary objective of this scoping review is to identify and chart available literature on the risk factors associated with tail-biting in pigs, and to identify and describe interventions that have been trialed to decrease, prevent or eliminate tail-biting behaviour in commercial pig production systems. The secondary objective of this review is acknowledge and identify gaps between producers’ and researchers’ perceived risks of tail-biting in commercial pig production systems.
