  1. The use of conjoint analysis to determine the importance of factors that affect on-farm welfare of the dairy cow

    | Contributor(s):: Angus, L. J., Bowen, H., Gill, L. A. S., Knowles, T. G., Butterworth, A.

    A large range of variables can affect the welfare of the dairy cow, making it difficult to assess the overall 'level of welfare' of the individual animal. Two groups of individuals completed a questionnaire based upon the 'five freedoms': 26 respondents had expertise either in the...

  2. Time budgets and adrenocortical activity of cows milked in a robot or a milking parlour: interrelationships and influence of social rank

    | Contributor(s):: Lexer, D., Hagen, K., Palme, R., Troxler, J., Waiblinger, S.

    Adrenocortical activity and time budgets in a robotic milking system in two variants of cow traffic (partially forced, free) were compared with a conventional milking system, focusing on the relationships between adrenocortical activity, time budgets, and social rank of the cows. Both groups were...

  3. Transportation of beef cattle to slaughterhouses and how this relates to animal welfare and carcase bruising in an extensive production system

    | Contributor(s):: Huertas, S. M., Gil, A. D., Piaggio, J. M., Eerdenburg, F. J. C. M. van

    The objective of this study was to evaluate conditions during transport and their effects on welfare and carcase bruising of beef cattle in Uruguay, a country with an extensive, pasture-based, production system. Twelve abattoirs were visited periodically during two years (2002-2003) and 448...

  4. Using a national dairy database to identify herds with poor welfare

    | Contributor(s):: Sandgren, C. H., Lindberg, A., Keeling, L. J.

    This research project was carried out by the Swedish Dairy Association as part of the development of a 'Scheme for Animal Welfare'. As a first step, on-farm, animal-based measurements on calves, young stock and cows in 55 randomly selected herds were performed. Nine animal-based measurements...

  5. Validation of an Animal Needs Index for cattle using Test Theory

    | Contributor(s):: Herva, T., Peltoniemi, O., Virtala, A. M.

    The validity of an ANI-based welfare index for cattle, the A-Index, was evaluated using Test Theory methods described for quality of life assessments in human medicine. Content validity was considered during the modification of the Index for Finnish beef production. In total, 43 items evaluating...

  6. Video image analysis and animal welfare on farm

    | Contributor(s):: Barbera, S.

    The management of farmed livestock frequently creates situations of stress because of the periodical necessity for handling procedures (weight and linear measurements, veterinary procedures etc). Some of these practices can be avoided using technologies that obviate the need for direct handling....

  7. Voluntary animal welfare assessment of mass-produced farm animal housing equipment using a standardised procedure

    | Contributor(s):: Knierim, U., Hesse, D., Borell, E. von, Herrmann, H. J., Muller, C., Rauch, H. W., Sachser, N., Zerbe, F.

  8. Welfare assessment on Japanese dairy farms using the Animal Needs Index

    | Contributor(s):: Seo, T., Date, K., Daigo, T., Kashiwamura, F., Sato, S.

    The Animal Needs Index (ANI) is used for on-farm assessment of welfare in Austria. However, no synthetic welfare assessment system exists in Japan. We performed a welfare assessment of Japanese dairy farms using the ANI scoring system. On 25 farms, 36 dairy herds were assessed using the...

  9. Welfare assessment: indices from clinical observation

    | Contributor(s):: Webster, A. J. F., Main, D. C. J., Whay, H. R.

    It is not enough to study animal welfare; our responsibility is to promote it. To this end, we need to step out of our laboratories and develop robust protocols for assessing welfare in groups of animals on farms or in the laboratory. While these protocols must incorporate principles derived from...

  10. A Mesolithic aurochs kill site (La Montagnes, Senas, bouches-du-Rhone)

  16. Behaviour to the human as a individuality of the milking cows

    | Contributor(s):: Shuji, Y.

    The importance of dairy cattle behaviour towards humans was examined. 17 milking cows of Niigata University Muramatsu Station were investigated. The behaviours to one human inside of cowshed and in the pasture were examined. Responses to the behaviour which the human did to the cows, the...

  17. Responses to a human of dairy cows when they are tethered in stanchion

    | Contributor(s):: Shuji, Y.

    A response to the person tethering milking cattle was shown in stanchion. A response toward the person is the very important nature which each individual shows. 15 milking cattle from the Niigata university farm were investigated. When a person stood up in the front, the response which cattle...

  19. The human factor - the benefits of humane and skilled stockmanship

    | Contributor(s):: Seabrook, M.

    This paper concludes that the behaviour of the stockperson can be a potential stressor with consequences for productivity and welfare. By adopting the correct empathic behaviour the stockperson can have a crucial role in creating an environment for improved animal welfare. Training programmes can...
