Increased Levels of Stress in Domestic Pigs Exposed to Magnetotelluric Anomalies caused by Stray Current

Kim Horsevad [9] | Tage R?dbro

Abstract: It is hypothesized that magnetotelluric anomalies from stray currents causes physiological stress in pigs causing stress behavior. This experimental study was conducted in three Danish pig herds, affected by magnetotelluric anomalies. The vocalization response was measured as a proxy for stress before and after neutralization of vortex field emitted from magnetotelluric anomaly. The results indicate that exposure to magnetotelluric anomalies caused by stray current increases stress in domesticated pigs (Sus scrofa domesticus). Analysis of animal vocalization can be used as a non-invasive procedure for monitoring effectiveness of mitigative strategies for stray current.
