Avoidance distance in sheep: test-retest reliability and relationship with stockmen attitude
Contributor(s):: Napolitano, F., Rosa, G. de, Girolami, A., Scavone, M., Braghieri, A.
Validity and reliability of simple measures of human animal relationship, such as avoidance distance in the pen (AD), avoidance distance at the manger (ADM) and percentage of animals not accepting to be touched at the manger (ADM0), were assessed in 20 sheep farms. Validity was tested using an...

Intensity of oestrus signalling is the most relevant indicator for animal well-being in high-producing dairy cows
Contributor(s):: Garcia, E., Hultgren, J., Fallman, P., Geust, J., Algers, B., Stilwell, G., Gunnarsson, S., Rodriguez-Martinez, H.
Full signalling of oestrous behaviour is vital for proper timing of AI and good reproductive performance, currently jeopardized by shorter observations of oestrus behaviour. Alternative indicators including progesterone (P4) recordings on-farm are tested. Oestrous intensity of 37 heifers (H) and...
