    The objectives were to determine the effect of in utero and early-life dietary exposure to a diverse diet or a perennial ryegrass (Lolium perenne L.) diet on grazing behavior and dietary neophobia of lambs ~3.5 months post-weaning (weaned at 6 weeks of age). Sixty-four Coopworth lambs (152.5...

  18. Early feeding experiences of piglets and their impact on novel environment behaviour and food neophobia

    | Contributor(s):: Middelkoop, Anouschka, Kemp, Bas, Bolhuis, J. Elizabeth

    We studied whether feeding experiences of piglets during lactation influence novel environment behaviour pre-weaning and food acceptance pre- and post-weaning.
