Review: From human-animal relation practice research to the development of the livestock farmer's activity: an ergonomics-applied ethology interaction
| Contributor(s):: Beaujouan, J., Cromer, D., Boivin, X.
Animal husbandry and working conditions for livestock farmers have changed significantly in recent years as agriculture has been exposed to economic as well as health, environmental and ethical challenges. The idea of interdependent welfare between humans and animals is more relevant now than...

'Tracking Together'—Simultaneous Use of Human and Dog Activity Trackers: Protocol for a Factorial, Randomized Controlled Pilot Trial
| Contributor(s):: Wasantha Jayawardene, Lesa Huber, Jimmy McDonnell, Laurel Curran, Sarah Larson, Stephanie Dickinson, Xiwei Chen, Erika Pena, Aletha Carson, Jeanne Johnston
Dog-walkers are more likely to achieve moderate-intensity physical activity. Linking the use of activity trackers with dog-walking may be beneficial both in terms of improving the targeted behavior and increasing the likelihood of sustained use. This manuscript aims to describe the protocol of...
Evaluation of the fitbark activity monitor for measuring physical activity in dogs
| Contributor(s):: Colpoys, J., Decock, D.
Accelerometers track changes in physical activity which can indicate health and welfare concerns in dogs. The FitBark 2 (FitBark) is an accelerometer for use with dogs; however, no studies have externally validated this tool. The objective of this study was to evaluate FitBark criterion...

Effects of horn status on behaviour in fattening cattle in the field and during reactivity tests
| Contributor(s):: Reiche, Anna-Maria, Dohme-Meier, Frigga, Claudia Terlouw, E. M.
Disbudding is in the short-term invasive and needs pharmacological pain treatment but it facilitates animal management. The present study investigates the longer-term consequences on behaviour to evaluate possible effects on animal welfare. Experiment 1 (E1) used 81 bulls up to the age of 12 and...
Provisioning of live black soldier fly larvae (Hermetia illucens) benefits broiler activity and leg health in a frequency- and dose-dependent manner
| Contributor(s):: Ipema, Allyson F., Gerrits, Walter J. J., Bokkers, Eddie A. M., Kemp, Bas, Bolhuis, J. Elizabeth
Fast-growing broilers spend most their time inactive and are therefore prone to experience leg problems. Environmental enrichment that facilitates intrinsically motivated behaviours can potentially promote activity and reduce leg problems, thereby improving broiler welfare. A promising...
The effect of castration on home range size and activity patterns of domestic cats living in a natural area in a protected area on a Brazilian island
| Contributor(s):: Ferreira, Giovanne Ambrosio, Machado, Juliana Clemente, Nakano-Oliveira, Eduardo, Andriolo, Artur, Genaro, Gelson
The presence of domestic cats (Felis silvestris catus) in natural areas can generate several environmental problems, such as competition with other species, disease transmission, and predation. Male cats generally tend to be more territorial than female cats. Male cats also tend to have larger...
Validation of accelerometers to automatically record postures and number of steps in growing lambs
| Contributor(s):: Högberg, Niclas, Höglund, Johan, Carlsson, Annelie, Saint-Jeveint, Marie, Lidfors, Lena
We validated the accuracy of two commercially available activity loggers for cattle in determining lying and standing durations, number of lying bouts and number of steps in growing lambs. Ten growing lambs divided into two weight classes were fitted with an IceTag on the right hind leg and an...
Shedding light into the dark: Age and light shape nocturnal activity and sleep behaviour of giraffe
| Contributor(s):: Burger, Anna Lena, Hartig, Johannes, Dierkes, Paul W.
The interaction of internal clocks and environmental conditions determines the daily behavioural rhythm of an animal. Due to the strong influence of light, these circadian rhythms oscillate in mammals over a cycle length of about 24 h, equivalent to the daily light-dark cycle. The relation...
Improving the Welfare of a Zoo-Housed Male Drill (Mandrillus leucophaeus poensis) Aggressive Toward Visitors
| Contributor(s):: Martín, Olga, Vinyoles, Dolors, García-Galea, Eduardo, Maté, Carmen
Improving the welfare of nonhuman animals in captivity and maintaining behavioral competence for future conservation purposes is of the highest priority for zoos. The behavior of an aggressive male drill (Mandrillus leucophaeus poensis) was assessed in Barcelona Zoo. The 2-year study presented in...
