Welfare effects of a disease eradication programme for dairy goats
| Contributor(s):: Muri, K., Leine, N., Valle, P. S.
The Norwegian dairy goat industry has largely succeeded in controlling caprine arthritis encephalitis (CAE), caseous lymphadenitis (CLA) and paratuberculosis through a voluntary disease eradication programme called Healthier Goats (HG). The aim of this study was to apply an on-farm welfare...

Urban white-tailed deer (Odocoileus virginianus) populations can influence the epidemiology of many zoonotic diseases because they affect the distribution and abundance of pathogens and vectors. The risk of emerging zoonotic pathogens increases with human populations, as people have closer...

Animal welfare: establishing a dialogue between science and society. (Special Issue: Knowing animals.)
| Contributor(s):: Miele, M., Veissier, I., Evans, A., Botreau, R.
Farm animal welfare has become an important issue for the European public, especially in the last two decades when a number of crises (eg Bovine Spongiform Encephalopathy and Avian Influenzalu) have affected farm animal populations. Public concern about this issue led the European Union to fund...
The welfare problems associated with using transgenic mice to bioassay for bovine spongiform encephalopathy
| Contributor(s):: Jenkins, E. S., Combes, R. D.
The ethical score system devised by Porter (Nature (1992) 365: 101-102) was applied to the transgenic mouse model used to bioassay BSE. Areas identified as potential targets for reducing the severity of the bioassay included the method of inoculation, duration of the bioassay and the duration of...
