  1. Safeguarding the welfare of livestock grazing on nature conservation sites

    Contributor(s):: Grayson, F. W.

    Nature conservationists frequently use domestic livestock to graze unimproved semi-natural vegetation in order to achieve the ecological objectives that they are seeking for the sites that they manage. This paper reviews the role of the Grazing Animals Project in raising awareness of the factors...

  2. Peripartum health and welfare of Holstein-Friesian cows in a confinement-TMR system compared to a pasture-based system

    Contributor(s):: Olmos, G., Mee, J. F., Hanlon, A., Patton, J., Murphy, J. J., Boyle, L.

    The greatest challenge to the welfare of dairy cows occurs in the peripartum period. Given the perception that cow welfare is better in more natural environments, it was hypothesised that cows in a PASTURE-based production system (cubicle housing with grass silage pre-partum and rotational...

  3. A review of mulesing and other methods to control flystrike (cutaneous myiasis) in sheep

The main control method used in Australia, the mulesing operation to remove folds of skin from the hindquarters of the sheep, is...

  4. An examination of some physiological variables for assessing the welfare of beef cattle in feedlots

    Contributor(s):: Wilson, S. C., Fell, L. R., Colditz, I. G., Collins, D. P.

    Some physiological variables which could aid in assessing the welfare of beef cattle in feedlots were screened in this exploratory study. In two experiments, each of 42 days duration, the physiological responses of Bos taurus steers to three treatments were investigated: pasture (rotation between...

  5. Behaviour to the human as a individuality of the milking cows

    Contributor(s):: Shuji, Y.

    The importance of dairy cattle behaviour towards humans was examined. 17 milking cows of Niigata University Muramatsu Station were investigated. The behaviours to one human inside of cowshed and in the pasture were examined. Responses to the behaviour which the human did to the cows, the...
