| Contributor(s):: Doane, Marie, Sarenbo, Sirkku
The results of this pilot study demonstrate that it is possible to construct a reliable questionnaire from prior validated surveys. This questionnaire displays possible suitability for further development into a tool for a comprehensive dog welfare assessment. The welfare model used is assuming...

| Contributor(s):: Tuomisto, Leena, Huuskonen, Arto, Jauhiainen, Lauri, Mononen, Jaakko
The objective of the present study was to compare the synchronisation of the lying, feeding and standing behaviour of bulls housed in an uninsulated barn and in a pasture. Dairy (Ayrshire and Holstein-Friesian) and beef (Hereford) bulls were housed in June-July in either partly bedded pens in an...
The course of parturition in two sow genotypes and two hut designs under free-range conditions
| Contributor(s):: Schild, S. L. A., Rangstrup-Christensen, L., Thorsen, C. K., Bonde, M. K., Pedersen, L. J.
High piglet mortality remains a major challenge in outdoor pig production. The use of hyper prolific sow genotypes giving birth to large litters may prolong parturition and cause parturition-related problems under outdoor conditions where birth assistance cannot easily be provided. Therefore, the...
Associations between precision sensor data with productivity, health and welfare indicator traits in native black and white dual-purpose cattle under grazing conditions
| Contributor(s):: Jaeger, Maria, Brügemann, Kerstin, Brandt, Horst, König, Sven
The aim of the study was to analyse the relationships between conventional production as well as subjectively scored welfare assessment traits with longitudinal sensor measurements (i.e., behavioural activity traits) of dual-purpose cattle kept in grazing systems. Such aim implies getting...
A single dose of ketoprofen in the immediate postpartum period has the potential to improve dairy calf welfare in the first 48 h of life
| Contributor(s):: Gladden, Nicola, Ellis, Kathryn, Martin, Jessica, Viora, Lorenzo, McKeegan, Dorothy
The welfare impact of birth on newborn calves has rarely been studied. Dystocia in particular may have significant welfare costs for calves. While analgesia is sometimes provided to calves born to difficult parturition by veterinary surgeons in practice, it is not known if this is actually...

| Contributor(s):: Batzina, Alkisti, Drossos, Ioannis-Panagiotis, Karakatsouli, Nafsika
Available literature indicates that fish are able to recognize familiar conspecifics and that familiarity may offer important benefits (e.g. more stable social environment, improved foraging behavior, growth, survival). In the practice of intensive rearing of European seabass Dicentrarchus labrax...
