The scope of this study was to evaluate the preference and the time of interest of weaned pigs to two different types of the environmental enrichments. For this experiment the 28 piglets in two pens were monitored by a camera. The enrichment materials were introduced to each pen for 3 days. All images were visually checked and labelled. The number and duration of interaction episodes with two environmental enrichments were determined. The video recordings of animals activity was measured using the Eyenamic software. The study carried out allowed to explore the interest and preference of piglets to two environmental enrichments.
