  1. Feeding behaviour of sheep on shrubs in response to contrasting herbaceous cover in rangelands dominated by Cytisus scoparius L

    Contributor(s):: Pontes, L. da S., Agreil, C., Magda, D., Gleizes, B., Fritz, H.

    The foraging responses of ewes faced with a diversity of feed items and their effects on broom (Cytisus scoparius L.) consumption were examined. The experiment was conducted on a farm in the autumn with ewes (n=33) grazing three small paddocks (0.44 ha on average, for at least 10 days each)...

  2. Inappropriate behavior of potential guide dogs for the blind and coping behavior of human raisers

    Contributor(s):: Koda, N.

    Inappropriate behaviour of potential guide dogs (puppies; n=11) for the blind and coping behaviour of their adult female raisers (puppy walkers: PWs) were videotaped in their play situation at home from when the puppies were 2-11 or 12 months of age. The frequency of inappropriate behaviour...

  3. Intake rate, intake per bite and time per bite of lactating ewes on vegetative and reproductive swards

    Contributor(s):: Prache, S.

    Rotational grazing by 8 Ile de France ewes, was examined in a cocksfoot (Dactylis glomerata cv. Lucifer) sward at a vegetative or reproductive (appearance of first flowerheads in the canopy) stage. Measurements were made during progressive grazing down of 1030-msuperscript 2 paddocks. Regression...

  4. A case series of biting dogs: characteristics of the dogs, their behaviour, and their victims

    Contributor(s):: Guy, N. C., Luescher, U. A., Dohoo, S. E., Spangler, E., Miller, J. B., Dohoo, I. R., Bate, L. A.

    The characteristics of 227 biting dogs, their homes, and their victims were gathered in a detailed telephone survey of general veterinary clientele in the Canadian provinces of New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, and Prince Edward Island in 1996. All of the dogs had bitten either someone living in the...

  5. Breed differences in canine aggression

    Contributor(s):: Duffy, D. L., Hsu, Y. Y., Serpell, J. A.

    Canine aggression poses serious public health and animal welfare concerns. Most of what is understood about breed differences in aggression comes from reports based on bite statistics, behaviour clinic caseloads, and experts' opinions. Information on breed-specific aggressiveness derived from...

  6. Social interactions of unfamiliar horses during paired encounters: effect of pre-exposure on aggression level and so risk of injury

    Contributor(s):: Hartmann, E., Christensen, J. W., Keeling, L. J.

    Group housing of horses is not widely applied in practice despite the welfare advantages of keeping animals socially rather than individually. In particular, concerns have been raised about the possible increased risk of injury and how to introduce a new horse into an established group. This...

  7. Tail biting in fattening pigs: associations between frequency of tail biting and other abnormal behaviours

    Contributor(s):: Brunberg, E., Wallenbeck, A., Keeling, L. J.

    This study investigated the association between tail biting (TB) and other abnormal behaviours in a group of non-tail docked pigs. Behavioural data were collected from 742 pigs housed on a commercial farm. The prevalence of performed and received TB, belly nosing, bar biting, ear biting and...

  8. The effect of physiological state (lactating or dry) and sward surface height on grazing behaviour and intake by dairy cows

    Contributor(s):: Gibb, M. J., Huckle, C. A., Nuthall, R., Rook, A. J.

    The effect of physiological state, lactating (n=27) vs. non-lactating (dry, n=27), on grazing behaviour and herbage intake by Holstein-Friesian cows was examined on grass (Lolium perenne cv. Melle) pastures maintained at 5, 7 or 9 cm sward surface height (SSH), typical of those provided under...

  9. The influence of different feeding arrangements and food type on competition at feeding in pregnant sows

    Contributor(s):: Andersen, I. L., Boe, K. E., Kristiansen, A. L.

    The effects of different feeding arrangements (body, shoulder and no partitions between sows) and type of food (wet vs. dry) on aggressive competition at feeding were investigated. Six groups of six pregnant sows were subjected to all the six treatments, and the order of treatments were rotated...

    In 1981, more than 3,200 Pennsylvania children, ages 4 to 18 years, were surveyed about their dog bite histories and attitudes toward animals. Dog bites were much more common than previously reported: 45 percent of children had been bitten during their lifetimes, and 15.5 percent had been bitten...
