  10. Relationship of human and animal tuberculosis in the interface areas of the National parks of the Kafue Basin in Zambia

    Contributor(s):: Musso Munyeme

    Tuberculosis is a disease of worldwide public health and economic importance. In Zambia the disease has been consistently reported in the Kafue Basin without a clear understanding of transmission dynamics in the livestock-wildlife interface. The main objective of this study was to determine the...

  11. In search of the behavioural correlates of optical flow patterns in the automated assessment of broiler chicken welfare

    Contributor(s):: Dawkins, Marian Stamp, Cain, Russell, Merelie, Kathryn, Roberts, Stephen J.

    Assessment of chicken welfare using camera surveillance of behaviour has great potential as a supplement to good stockmanship and as an aid to improving flock management. Suitable cameras are now readily available and the automated analysis of the lengthy video sequences from the cameras can be...

  12. The welfare of ferrets (Mustela putorius furo T): A review on the housing and management of pet ferrets

    Contributor(s):: Vinke, Claudia M., Schoemaker, Nico J.

    Ferrets are very agile and lively animals, and their behavioural needs are not easily met in housing conditions like our living rooms. Nevertheless, ferrets are increasingly popular as pets. The present paper aims to review and discuss the available knowledge on our pet ferret. Topics are...

    Contributor(s):: Toaff-Rosenstein, Rachel L., Gershwin, Laurel J., Zanella, Adroaldo J., Tucker, Cassandra B.

    Bovine respiratory disease (BRD) is the most common disorder in North American beef cattle. This work aimed to describe the BRD sickness response, identify measures to improve detection, and assess effects of a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID). We hypothesized that BRD challenge would...
