  1. Keel-bone damage and foot injuries in commercial laying hens in Denmark

    Contributor(s):: Riber, A. B., Hinrichsen, L. K.

  2. Calcium and other ions in blood and skeleton of Nicaraguan fresh-water shark

    Contributor(s):: Marshall R. Urist

    The bull shark, Carcharhinus lellcas, employing archaic but effective means of regulating the physical-chemical composition of its body fluids, thrives in tropical fresh-water rivers and lakes. The ionic strength of the serum and the concentrations of total solutes, calcium, urea, and other ions...

  3. Effects of qualitative and quantitative food restriction treatments on feeding motivational state and general activity level of growing broiler breeders

    Contributor(s):: Savory, C. J., Lariviere, J. M.

    Growing broiler breeder chickens are fed restricted rations to limit body weight at sexual maturity. This experiment tested a proposal (Brouns, F. et al. Applied Animal Behaviour Sciience (1994) 39, 215-223.) that feeding motivation is reduced by using qualitative rather than quantitative food...

  4. Effects of calcium deficiency in broilers on the use of outdoor areas, foraging activity and production parameters

    Contributor(s):: Christensen, J. W., Nielsen, B. L., Young, J. F., Noddegaard, F.

    The present experiment investigated the effects of a calcium deficient diet on the use of outdoor areas, foraging activity and production parameters in two strains of slow-growing broilers (i657 and a Labresse cross). The birds were housed as day-old in an indoor system of 2x8 groups of each 111...

  6. Companion animals as sentinels for community exposure to industrial chemicals: the Fairburn, GA, propyl mercaptan case study

    | Contributor(s):: Maciejewski, R., Glickman, N., Moore, G., Zheng, Cheng, Tyner, B., Cleveland, W., Ebert, D., Glickman, L.

    Objectives. This study utilized the electronic medical records of six veterinary hospitals (operated by Banfield, The Pet HospitalReg.) in the vicinity of Fairburn, Georgia, to assess the health of dogs and cats following the unintentional release of propyl mercaptan from a waste-processing...

  7. Behavioural changes associated with the feeding of low-sodium diets to laying hens

    | Contributor(s):: Hughes, B. O., Whitehead, C. C.

    The technique of inducing a pause in egg production with a low-sodium diet is gaining a place in laying-flock management, but there have been some reports of adverse effects, such as foot pecking. A pilot experiment showed that under some circumstances damaging pecking did occur when low-sodium...

  8. Behavioural and physiological responses of suckling lambs to transport and lairage

    | Contributor(s):: Ibanez, M., Fuente, J. de la, Thos, J., Gonzalez de Chavarri, E.

    The effects on suckling lambs of two stocking densities during transport (high stocking density: eight lambs per m2; low stocking density: four lambs per m2) and two periods of lairage before slaughter (1.5 and 3 h) were studied. The behaviour of lambs transported for short-duration journeys at...
