The HABRI Foundation is calling for research proposals to investigate the health outcomes of pet ownership and/or animal-assisted activity or therapy, both for the people and the animals involved. To learn more, visit https://habri.org/grants/funding-opportunities/ close

  1. Deer-activated bioacoustic frightening device deters white-tailed deer

    Contributor(s):: Hildreth, Aaron M., Hygnstrom, Scott E., VerCauteren, Kurt C.

  2. Locomotor activity of dairy cows in relation to season and lactation

    Contributor(s):: Brzozowska, A., Lukaszewicz, M., Sender, G., Kolasinska, D., Oprzadek, J.

    All systems recording activity of cattle measure it independently of environmental and animal factors. Such recordings may hide differences in activity caused by extraneous interferences or may be inaccurately interpreted. The information produced by sensors could be more accurate, if behaviour...

  3. Problems at the human-horse interface and prospects for smart textile solutions

    Contributor(s):: McGreevy, P. D., Sundin, M., Karlsteen, M., Berglin, L., Ternstrom, J., Hawson, L., Richardsson, H., McLean, A. N.

    The significant potential for so-called "smart textiles" in the design of the next generation of devices that measure pressure, tension, moisture, and heat at the human-horse interface is discussed in this article. Research techniques from theoretical and experimental physics laboratories,...

  4. Lying patterns of high producing healthy dairy cows after calving in commercial herds as affected by age, environmental conditions and production

    Contributor(s):: Steensels, M., Bahr, C., Berckmans, D., Halachmi, I., Antler, A., Maltz, E.

  5. Are cows more likely to lie down the longer they stand?

    Contributor(s):: Tolkamp, B. J., Haskell, M. J., Langford, F. M., Roberts, D. J., Morgan, C. A.

    Information on (changes in) standing and lying behaviour of cows can be used for oestrus detection, early diagnosis of disorders and to evaluate welfare consequences of changes in housing and management. Data sets on lying and standing behaviour were collected from cows with IceTagTM sensors...

  6. Validation of an automatic system to detect position changes in puerperal sows

    Contributor(s):: Mainau, E., Dalmau, A., Ruiz-de-la-Torre, J. L., Manteca, X.

    Piglet crushing by the sow is one of the main causes of piglet mortality during the first 48 h after birth. The frequency of position changes may be partially related to the pain caused by farrowing. The aim of this study was to develop and validate an automatic system to register position...

  7. An automatic system to monitor lying, standing and walking behaviour of grazing animals

    Contributor(s):: Champion, R. A., Rutter, S. M., Penning, P. D.

    Sensors incorporating mercury tilt switches were used to measure the lying, standing and walking behaviour of grazing cattle and sheep. The lying/standing sensor was suspended below the animal, whilst the walking sensor was fitted to the shin of the animal's foreleg. Both switches gave a...

  8. Effects of animal/feeding-place ratio on the behaviour and performance of fattening pigs fed via sensor-controlled liquid feeding

    Contributor(s):: Rasmussen, D. K., Weber, R., Wechsler, B.

    Sensor feeding is a liquid feeding system for fattening pigs that is run with a restricted animal/feeding-place ratio (AFR). Feeding occurs at specific periods, so that the trough is left empty in-between. Therefore, it must be regarded as an ad libitum feeding system. The aim of the present...

  9. The somatic sensory system

    Contributor(s):: Kamerling, S. G.

    The somatic sensory system provides information on bodily sensations. The status of an animal's internal and external environment is detected and interpreted by this system. Specialized receptors "transduce" the sensations of touch, pressure, temperature, and pain. Sensory impulses are...
