  1. Behavior of feral horses in response to culling and GnRH immunocontraception

    Full-text: Available

    | Contributor(s):: Ransom, Jason I., Powers, Jenny G., Garbe, Heidi M., Oehler, Michael W., Nett, Terry M., Baker, Dan L.

    Wildlife management actions can alter fundamental behaviors of individuals and groups, which may directly impact their life history parameters in unforeseen ways. This is especially true for highly social animals because changes in one individual's behavior can cascade throughout its social...

  2. The Wood-Gush legacy: A sociobiology perspective to fertility and welfare in chickens

    | Contributor(s):: Pizzari, Tommaso

    Wood-Gush’s seminal work on the social behaviour and welfare of fowl populations laid the foundations of a sociobiology approach to understand the evolutionary nature of social interactions and their applied significance for domestic animals. Within this context, maintaining high fertility and...

  5. Too many hogs? A review of methods to mitigate impact by wild boar and feral hogs

    | Contributor(s):: Massei, G., Roy, S., Bunting, R.

  6. Slow and steady wins the race? No signs of reduced welfare in smaller broiler breeder hens at four weeks of age

    | Contributor(s):: Lindholm, C., Calais, A., Jonsson, J., Yngwe, N., Berndtson, E., Hult, E., Altimiras, J.

    Broiler breeder chickens are commonly reared under strict feed-restriction regimes to reduce obesity-induced health and fertility problems during adult life, and are assumed to experience a reduced welfare due to the resulting hunger. In these conditions, feed competition could influence the...

  7. Comparison of the behaviour of piglets raised in an artificial rearing system or reared by the sow

    | Contributor(s):: Rzezniczek, M., Gygax, L., Wechsler, B., Weber, R.

    Over the last 15 years, rising sow fertility has led to a considerable increase in litter size. As a consequence, the number of live born piglets may outnumber the number of functional teats, and surplus piglets are removed from the sow at the age of 3-6 days and fed with artificial milk. The...

  8. Perception of the benefits of the ownership of companion animals in people with fertility disordersPercepcion de los beneficios de la tenencia de animales de compania en personas con problemas de infertilidad

    | Contributor(s):: Hugues H, B., Alvarez A, A., Castelo E. C, L., Ledon L, L., Mendoza T, M., Dominguez A, E.

    The aim of this study was to evaluate the perception of persons with fertility disorders regarding pet ownership and its relationship with personal satisfaction and benefits on psicoemotional health. A survey using a questionnaire was conducted. The results showed that 50 and 20% of the persons...

  9. The milky way: the implications of using animal milk products in infant feeding

    | Contributor(s):: Howcroft, R., Eriksson, G., Liden, K.

    Animal milks have been used in infant feeding for at least a few millennia, but this can only have become a common practice after the domestication of dairy animals during the Neolithic. Neolithic population increase has often been attributed to the effect of a reduction in breastfeeding duration...

  13. Dog sacrifice in ancient and modernn Greece: from the sacrifice ritual to dog torture

    | Contributor(s):: Sergis, Manolis G.

  14. Can dogs alleviate the desolation created by having fewer children? An empirical study in the Japanese context

    | Contributor(s):: Kawata, Y.

    Over the last several decades, in Japan, the young population (YP; less than 14 years old) has decreased whereas the number of registered dogs (RDs) has increased as a result of various socioeconomic factors. The total sum of YP and RD has remained virtually constant since the early 1990s. In...

  16. Effect of different rearing systems and pre-kindling handling on behaviour and performance of rabbit does

    | Contributor(s):: Mugnai, C., Bosco, A. dal, Castellini, C.

    The aim of this study was to ascertain how collective cage and pre-kindling handling (training does to go into their own nest) practices, in comparison to standard housing (single cage rearing), modify the behaviour and the performance of rabbit does. To this aim, 40 nulliparous New Zealand White...

  17. Effects of different suckling systems on milk production, udder health, reproduction, calf growth and some behavioural aspects in high producing dairy cows - a review. (Special issue: Suckling)

    | Contributor(s):: Krohn, C. C.

    This article discusses the consequences of different suckling systems in industrial countries on milk production, udder health, reproduction and behaviour of high-producing dairy cows, and the effects on the gain, health and behaviour of the calves. The suckling systems are divided into three...

  18. Influences of immunocontraception on time budgets, social behavior, and body condition in feral horses

    | Contributor(s):: Ransom, J. I., Cade, B. S., Hobbs, N. T.

    Managers concerned with shrinking habitats and limited resources for wildlife seek effective tools for limiting population growth in some species. Fertility control is one such tool, yet little is known about its impacts on the behavioral ecology of wild, free-roaming animals. We investigated...

  19. Mating behavior of bucks and does in goat operations under range conditions

    | Contributor(s):: Mellado, M., Cardenas, C., Ruiz, F.

    The objectives of this study were to characterize the mating capacity of bucks under range condition and assess the effect of mating frequency on flock fertility. Two adjacent flocks of crossbred goats (Criollo x dairy goat breeds; n = 70 does, 5 bucks and 141 does, 4 bucks) were used. The mating...

  20. Reproductive and aggressive behavior in male broiler breeders with varying fertility levels

    | Contributor(s):: McGary, S., Estevez, I., Russek-Cohen, E.

    Differential male fertility in naturally mated broiler breeders appears to be an inadvertent negative result of genetic selection for growth and high yield. Identifying male behaviors that reliably indicate fertility could improve production while avoiding artificial insemination procedures. We...
