Carnevale: What Matters to Pigs

Cath Keay, Andrea Roe, Abi Glen

    Research output: Contribution to conferencePaperpeer-review


    Equity for Pigs builds on ‘CARNEVALE’, an art-science project at Scotland’s Rural College funded by the Leverhulme Trust. Here, sculptural methods and an artistic approach were used to seek ethical, environmental and economically viable husbandry solutions, with the research findings then actively promoted at agricultural shows and across the wider public domain. The main objective throughout the process of designing and making enrichment toys was ‘What matters most to pigs?’ Natural materials and ergonomic designs enabled the pigs to safely explore with their mouths, noses and feet.
