  1. Influence of indoor-cat group size and dominance rank on urinary cortisol levels

    Contributor(s):: Lichtsteiner, M., Turner, D. C.

    Domestic cats (Felis silvestris catus) are often housed indoors both singly and in groups. However, there is a lack of studies dealing with cat-cat relationships, group composition and effects of environmental parameters on the well-being of privately-owned cats. One way to index the effects of...

  2. Potential animal-centred indicators of dairy goat welfare

    Contributor(s):: Mazurek, M., Marie, M., Desor, D.

    This paper presents five tests based on behavioural and other animal-centred observations concerning dairy goat welfare. An emotional reactivity test (n=40) classified the animals into different groups according to their behaviour in response to fear-eliciting stimuli, and identified anxious...

  3. Rank correlated use of soft flooring by dairy cattle

    Contributor(s):: Platz, S., Ahrens, F., Bendel, J., Meyer, H., Erhard, M. H.

    The present study covers rank correlated use of soft flooring during partial replacement (45% of the total floor space) of concrete slatted floor by rubber covering. For this purpose, the rank position of 19 cows within a 50 Brown Swiss dairy cattle herd was evaluated by calculating the...

  4. 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...

  5. Transcranial magnetic stunning of broilers: a preliminary trial to induce unconsciousness

    Contributor(s):: Lambooij, E., Anil, H., Butler, S. R., Reimert, H., Workel, L., Hindle, V.

    This study was performed to identify whether non-focal transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) with an adapted coil for broilers has the potential for use as a non-invasive stunning method for broilers. Application of the TMS probe resulted in dominance of theta and delta waves and appearance of...

  7. Genetics and the development of social behavior in dogs

    Contributor(s):: Scott, J. P.

    The puppies used in the experiments lived with their litter-mates from birth until 1 yr. of age, first in large nursery rooms and later in spacious outdoor runs. Behavioural tests were given to animals of 5 different breeds: Basenji, Beagle, Cocker Spaniel, Shetland Sheep Dog, and Wire-haired Fox...
