Abstract

The behavioural responses of Jersey, Friesland and crossbred cows to humans were determined by recording their avoidance distance scores (AD), exit speed (ES), pen score (PS), pen behaviour score (PBS), platform score (PLS), and the occurrence of kicking (KCK) and stepping (SPG) during milking in four different seasons (hot-wet, hot-dry, cool-dry and post rainy seasons). The Friesland had the lowest AD scores (P
