Ear biting is a welfare challenge in commercial pig farming. Pigs sustain injuries at the site of bite paving the way for bacterial infections. Early detection and management of this behaviour is important to enhance animal health and welfare, increase productivity whilst minimising inputs from medication. Pig management using physical observation is not practical due to the scale of modern pig production systems. The same applies to the manual analysis of captured videos from pig houses. Therefore, a method of automated detection is desirable.
