    Full-text: Available

    | Contributor(s):: Joaquín Bull, Fernando Bas, Macarena Silva-Guzmán, Hope Helen Wentzel, Juan Pablo Keim, Mónica Gandarillas

    The aim of this study was to characterize the routine care, training, feeding, and nutritional management of Chilean corralero horses that participated in the rodeos of the Chilean Rodeo Federation. Forty-nine horse farms between the Metropolitan (33°26′16″ south (S)...

  9. Effects of farrowing stall layout and number of heat lamps on sow and piglet behavior

    | Contributor(s):: Leonard, Suzanne M., Xin, Hongwei, Brown-Brandl, Tami M., Ramirez, Brett C., Johnson, Anna K., Dutta, Somak, Rohrer, Gary A.

  11. Health and Body Conditions of Riding School Horses Housed in Groups or Kept in Conventional Tie-Stall/Box Housing

    Full-text: Available

    | Contributor(s):: Jenny Yngvesson, Juan Carlos Rey Torres, Jasmine Lindholm, Annika Pättiniemi, Petra Andersson, Hanna Sassner

    We compared welfare measures of horses among Swedish riding schools (RS) during winter where horses were kept either in group housing (n = 8) or in tie-stalls/boxes (n = 8), Health data for six previous months were obtained for all horses at each RS from their records. Ten horses per...

  12. 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. In a 2 × 2 arrangement, litters (n = 10/treatment) received creep feed as monotonous diet (MO) or four feed items as diverse diet (DD)...

  13. Comparative assessment of general behaviour and fear-related responses in hatchery-hatched and on-farm hatched broiler chickens

    | Contributor(s):: Giersberg, Mona F., Poolen, Ilse, de Baere, Kris, Gunnink, Henk, van Hattum, Theo, van Riel, Johan W., de Jong, Ingrid C.

    Traditionally, broiler chickens hatch in the hatchery and they are usually not provided with feed and water until placement at the farm. This can have negative effects on their health and welfare. Therefore, alternative systems providing early nutrition, for instance by hatching eggs in a poultry...

  14. Motivation for feeding in broiler breeder pullets fed different types of restricted high-fibre diets

    | Contributor(s):: Riber, Anja B., Tahamtani, Fernanda M.

    High-fibre diets have been suggested as alternative feeding strategies that potentially may alleviate the hunger felt by feed-restricted broiler breeders and fulfil their behavioural need for feeding behaviour. The aim of the present study was to investigate the effects of four dietary...

  15. Preliminary investigation of social interactions and feeding behavior in captive group-housed Tasmanian devils (Sarcophilus Harrisii)

    | Contributor(s):: Skelton, Candice J. A., Stannard, Hayley J.

    As the number of Tasmanian devils (Sarcophilus harrisii) in captivity increases, an understanding of captive social dynamics and behavior is becoming increasingly important. In the wild, devils are solitary, although sometimes, they congregate to feed on a large carcass. However, it is common to...

  16. The Effect of an Irregular Feeding Schedule on Equine Behavior

    | Contributor(s):: Zupan, Manja, Štuhec, Ivan, Jordan, Dušanka

    We used eight horses 1 to 12 years old to investigate the influence of irregular feeding times on the behavior. The animals were housed in individual boxes, fed with hay ad libitum and barley-oat mixture at three set times; 05:00 (earlier feeding) on Thursdays, 07:00 (delayed feeding) on...

  17. Food for Thought: Assessing Visitor Comfort and Attitudes toward Carcass Feeding at the ABQ BioPark Zoo

    | Contributor(s):: Roth, Ellen K., Visscher, Nick C., Ha, Renee Robinette

    Enrichment is a key to keeping animals in zoos healthy and stimulated. For carnivores, the practice of feeding vertebrate animal carcasses, like those of goats or deer, or whole body prey animals like chickens or rabbits, can be an effective form of enrichment. While it is beneficial for animal...

  18. Trade-offs between feeding and social companionship in cattle: Intra-animal consistency over short and extended periods

    | Contributor(s):: Hirata, Masahiko, Taketomi, Ikuko, Matsumoto, Yuka, Kubo, Shotaro

    The conflict between sociability and foraging motivation in animals is considered to be of potential value for use in the management of grassland systems to improve grazing pattern of livestock over grasslands. However, individual differences in behaviors relating to this conflict have not been...

  19. Short- and long-term effects of eight enrichment materials on the behaviour of finishing pigs fed ad libitum or restrictively

    | Contributor(s):: Zwicker, Bettina, Gygax, Lorenz, Wechsler, Beat, Weber, Roland

    In a semi-natural environment, a lot of the daily activity of pigs is spent in exploratory and foraging behaviour. Providing enrichment material attractive to the pigs both over the short and long term is therefore important in intensive housing systems. This study aimed to investigate the effect...

  20. Effects of restraint with or without blinds at the feed barrier on feeding and agonistic behaviour in horned and hornless goats

    | Contributor(s):: Hillmann, Edna, Hilfiker, Sandra, Keil, Nina Maria

    The strict dominance hierarchy in goats bears the risk of low-ranking goats not getting adequate access to feed, especially for goats in small groups. The aim of our study was to test the effect of restraint in headlocks with and without blinds at the feed barrier on feeding and agonistic...
