Effects of social learning on foraging behaviour and live weight gain in first-season grazing calves
Contributor(s):: Hessle, A. K.
When livestock are turned out to semi-natural grasslands, an effective onset of grazing is important both for animal productivity and for defoliation of the sward, which preserve the biodiversity of the vegetation. The aim of this study was to investigate whether foraging behaviour of naive...
