  11. Behavioral patterns of yaks (Bos grunniens) grazing on alpine shrub meadows of the Qinghai-Tibetan Plateau

    Contributor(s):: Yang, Chuntao, Tsedan, Guru, Fan, Qingshan, Wang, Shulin, Wang, Zhaofeng, Chang, Shenghua, Hou, Fujiang

  12. Effects of access to hay on cognition of pre-weaned dairy calves and behavior upon social grouping after weaning

    Contributor(s):: Horvath, Kelsey C., Gingerich, Katie N., Hixson, Catherine L., Miller-Cushon, Emily K.

    Individually housed dairy calves typically have restrictive environments which could lead to detrimental effects on cognition. We hypothesized that providing calves with hay prior to weaning, in addition to a standard starter diet and milk, would improve cognitive ability and influence adaptation...

  13. 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...

  14. On-Farm Evaluation of an Automatic Enrichment Device with Maize Silage for Laying Hens

    Contributor(s):: Giersberg, Mona Franziska, Kemper, Nicole, Spindler, Birgit

    Challenges in alternative housing for laying hens are barren functional areas such as winter gardens and the occurrence of behavioral disorders. Environmental enrichment is a measure to deal with these problems. Therefore, an enrichment device offering maize silage automatically was tested in two...

  15. Environmental Enrichment Effect on Fecal Glucocorticoid Metabolites and Captive Maned Wolf (Chrysocyon brachyurus) Behavior

    Contributor(s):: Coelho, Carlyle Mendes, Azevedo, Cristiano Schetini de, Guimarães, Marcelo Alcino de Barros Vaz, Young, Robert John

    Environmental enrichment is a technique that may reduce the stress of nonhuman animals in captivity. Stress may interfere with normal behavioral expression and affect cognitive decision making. Noninvasive hormonal studies can provide important information about the stress statuses of animals....

  16. Sward botanical composition and sward quality affect the foraging behaviour of free-range laying hens

    Contributor(s):: Breitsameter, Laura, Gauly, Matthias, Isselstein, Johannes

    In a two-year experiment, we investigated the influence of sward plant species composition (sward type), stocking duration and state of sward degradation on the foraging behaviour of chickens. Laying hens (ISA Warren) were pastured on 15 sward types including 14 monocultures of grassland plant...

  17. Influence of diet sequence on intake of foods containing ergotamine d tartrate, tannins and saponins by sheep

    Contributor(s):: Jensen, Tiffanny Lyman, Provenza, Frederick D., Villalba, Juan J.

    Plant secondary compounds (SCs) play crucial roles in plant survival and defense against herbivores and in appropriate amounts SCs provide health and nutritional benefits to herbivores. The presence of SCs in plants is important, and means need to be found to enhance their benefits while...

  18. First links between self-feeding behaviour and personality traits in European seabass, Dicentrarchus labrax

    Contributor(s):: Ferrari, Sébastien, Benhaïm, David, Colchen, Tatiana, Chatain, Béatrice, Bégout, Marie-Laure

    Most studies carried out with seabass under self-feeding conditions report an intriguing social structure that is built around the device and the food dispenser with three coexisting triggering categories: high-triggering (HT), low-triggering (LT) and zero-triggering (ZT) fish. However, neither...

  19. Efficacy of foraging enrichments to increase foraging time in Grey parrots (Psittacus erithacus erithacus)

    Contributor(s):: van Zeeland, Yvonne R. A., Schoemaker, Nico J., Ravesteijn, Manon M., Mol, Marjon, Lumeij, Johannes T.

    Foraging enrichment is considered one of the most effective strategies to improve welfare and reduce stereotypies and other abnormal repetitive behaviours in captive animals, including parrots. Few studies, however, have investigated the effects of the different types of enrichment and determined...

  20. Cattle habitat selection and associated habitat characteristics under free-range grazing within heterogeneous Montane rangelands of Alberta

    Contributor(s):: Kaufmann, Jillian, Bork, Edward W., Blenis, Peter V., Alexander, Michael J.

    The integration of multiple uses on public rangeland requires reliable information on patterns of livestock use. We used GPS data and field plot utilization indices to examine cattle selection at the landscape and patch levels, respectively, within a heterogeneous Montane environment of SW...
