  1. Among-individual variation of risk-taking behaviour in group and solitary context is uncorrelated but independently repeatable in a juvenile Arctic charr (Salvelinus alpinus) aquaculture strain

    Contributor(s):: Philip, Joris, Dellinger, Marion, Benhaïm, David

    Behavioural traits have been shown to have implications in fish welfare and growth performances in aquaculture. If several studies have demonstrated the existence of repeatable and heritable behavioural traits (i.e., animal personality), the methodology to assess personality in fishes is often...

  2. Do you see what I see? Investigating the validity of an equine personality questionnaire

    Contributor(s):: Jolivald, Aurélie, Yarnell, Kelly, Hall, Carol, Ijichi, Carrie

    Subjective equine personality questionnaires have the potential to predict a range of industry-relevant outcomes including fear reactivity, compliance with human cues, pain expression and susceptibility to stereotypies, in a time- and cost-efficient manner. However, to produce meaningful measures...

  3. Evaluation of consistency over time of the use of the Animal Welfare Indicators protocol for horses

    Contributor(s):: Czycholl, I., Buttner, K., Klingbeil, P., Krieter, J.

  4. Development of approach and handling tests for the assessment of reactivity to humans of sows housed in stall or in group

    Contributor(s):: Clouard, Caroline, Meunier-Salaün, Marie-Christine, Devillers, Nicolas

    The aim of the present study was to develop reliable and easy-to-use tests for on-farm assessment of sow reactivity to human in different housing systems. A total of 123 gestating sows at different parities and stages of pregnancy were successively subjected to two tests according to their...

  5. Consistency of individual variation in feeding behaviour and its relationship with performance traits in Nile tilapia Oreochromis niloticus

    Contributor(s):: Martins, Catarina I. M., Conceição, Luis E. C., Schrama, Johan W.

    Feed intake is commonly used as one of the most important performance indicators in fish. However, very little is known about the behavioural processes involved in ingesting food such as meal duration, feeding frequency and latency to start eating. This study aims at the characterization of...

  6. Reactions of sheep towards three sets of emotional stimuli: (In)Consistency in respect to stimulus valence and sheep identity

    | Contributor(s):: Gygax, Lorenz, Vögeli, Sabine

    There is an increasing interest in affective states in applied animal behaviour science, because these states are thought to reflect welfare from the perspective of the animals. Also, it can be expected that individuals differ in how they consistently react to emotional challenges. Recently, we...

  7. On-farm qualitative behaviour assessment in sheep: repeated measurements across time, and association with physical indicators of flock health and welfare

    | Contributor(s):: Phythian, Clare J., Michalopoulou, Eleni, Cripps, Peter J., Duncan, Jennifer S., Wemelsfelder, Françoise

    Qualitative Behavioural Assessment (QBA) is a ‘whole-animal’ methodology that assesses the expressive qualities of animal behaviour using terms such as ‘tense’, ‘relaxed’, ‘anxious’, and ‘content’. The reliability and validity of QBA as...

  8. Grief following pet and human loss: Closeness is key

    | Contributor(s):: Eckerd, Lizabeth M., Barnett, James E., Jett-Dias, Latishia

  9. The Inconsistent Vegetarian

    | Contributor(s):: van der Kooi, M. E.

  10. A therapeutic recreation intervention using animal-assisted therapy: effects on the subjective well-being of older adults

    | Contributor(s):: Richeson, N. E., McCullough, W. T.

  11. Effects of animal-assisted therapy on agitated behaviors and social interactions of older adults with dementia: an evidence-based therapeutic recreation intervention

    | Contributor(s):: Richeson, N. E.

  12. Individual behavioural differences in pigs: intra- and inter-test consistency

    | Contributor(s):: Spoolder, H. A. M., Burbidge, J. A., Lawrence, A. B., Simmins, P. H., Edwards, S. A.

    The behavioural responses of 208 gilts were tested in the following situations: 1, an open field with a novel stimulus (bucket or human); 2, individual access to feed for 15 min after 20 h of starvation; 3, competition for feed after starvation; and 4, general activity and feeding behaviour in a...

  13. Consistency in avoidance of humans by individual red deer

    | Contributor(s):: Pollard, J. C., Littlejohn, R. P.

    Four groups of red deer, housed inside, were given 3 tests per day for 6 days. All tests began with a person standing at the front wall of the pen for 1 min, the person remained stationary for a further minute (A tests), walked to the centre of the pen and stood for 1 min (B tests), or walked to...

  14. Individual variation and consistency in piglet behaviour

    | Contributor(s):: Jensen, P., Forkman, B., Thodberg, K., Koster, E.

    The behaviour of 42 piglets from 13 litters was recorded immediately after birth and after suckling when the piglets were 16-24 h and 3 weeks old; the piglets were undisturbed during the behaviour recordings which lasted 1 h and 16 min, respectively. At 3 weeks of age, piglets were moved to a...
