  1. Dairy calves' adaptation to group housing with automated feeders

    Contributor(s):: Fujiwara, M., Rushen, J., Passille, A. M. de

    Group housing of dairy calves with automated milk feeders has likely welfare and labour saving advantages but delays in the calves adapting to the feeding system may reduce these advantages. We examined factors that influence calves' adaptation to the feeders. In Exp. 1, 77 Holstein calves were...

  2. Nutrition for working and service dogs

    Contributor(s):: Wakshlag, J., Shmalberg, J.

    Conformation, genetics, and behavioral drive are the major determinants of success in canine athletes, although controllable variables, such as training and nutrition, play an important role. The scope and breadth of canine athletic events has expanded dramatically in the past 30 years, but with...

  3. Purebred dogs and canine wellbeing

    Contributor(s):: Jeppsson, S.

    Breeders of purebred dogs usually have several goals they want to accomplish, of which canine wellbeing is one. The purpose of this article is to investigate what we ought to do given this goal. Breeders typically think that they fulfil their wellbeing-related duties by doing the best they can...

  4. Interrogation of modern and ancient genomes reveals the complex domestic history of cattle

    Contributor(s):: David A. Magee, David E. MacHugh, Ceiridwen J. Edwards

    The development of agriculture at the advent of the Neolithic period, circa 13,000 years before present (YBP), is considered to be the most important cultural innovation in human history. Before this, anatomically modern humans had successfully managed to occupy most habitable and accessible...

  5. The domestication of the dog: An unrivalled alliance

  6. Encounters on the frontier: Banteng in Australia's Northern Territory

    Contributor(s):: deKoninck, V.

    This paper considers the case of an introduced species that resides in what is now a jointly managed national park in the north of tropical Australia. Banteng ( Bos javanicus) are a peculiar feral nonhuman animal in that they constitute a potential environmental threat within the domestic...

  7. Relationships between young stallions' temperament and their behavioral reactions during standardized veterinary examinations

    Contributor(s):: Peeters, M., Verwilghen, D., Serteyn, D., Vandenheede, M.

    Horse handling and veterinary examination can induce hazardous stress reactions. Such reactions occur especially in young and less-trained horses, particularly stallions, and make their handling a risk for breeders, grooms, and medical staff. Moreover, these stressful situations will affect the...

    Contributor(s):: Harding, S.

  9. Genetic and environmental influences on individual differences in frequency of play with pets among middle-aged men: a behavioral genetic analysis

  16. A candidate gene association study of cryptorchidism and scrotal hernia using canine and porcine models

    Contributor(s):: Xia Zhao, Max Rothschild (adviser)

    Cryptorchidism and scrotal hernia, both being sex-limited complex defects, are the most common congenital defects observed in humans, dogs and pigs. It is believed that these two defects are controlled by multiple genes as well as affected by environmental factors. In this thesis, 22 or 14...
