  1. Suckling activity and calf growth in a group of crossbred cows each rearing two foster calves

    Contributor(s):: Rosecrans, J. G., Hohenboken, W. D.

    Each of 3 Limousin X (Holstein-Friesian (HF) X Aberdeen-Angus) and 6 Limousin X (HF X Hereford) cows was presented with 2 alien calves within 5 min of parturition. Each cow's own calf was removed, and later fostered to another cow. Foster trios were observed periodically until introduction to the...

  4. Influence of Cold Environments on Growth, Antioxidant Status, Immunity and Expression of Related Genes in Lambs

    Contributor(s):: Shi, Lulu, Xu, Yuanqing, Jin, Xiao, Wang, Zheqi, Mao, Chenyu, Guo, Shiwei, Yan, Sumei, Shi, Binlin

    Cold climates may be a risk to the health and welfare of lambs during winter because cold environments alter the physiological processes of lambs, and we used cold environments with three different temperature gradients—an indoor heating control group (IHC) using electric heating; an indoor...

    | Contributor(s):: Wang, Mingcan, Zhang, Junkai, Huang, Xiuqiong, Liu, Yisong, Zeng, Jianguo

    This study investigated the effect of dietary Macleaya cordata extract (MCE) supplementation on the growth performance, serum parameters, and intestinal microbiota of yellow-feather broilers under heat stress. A total of 216 yellow-feather broilers (28-days-old) were randomly allotted into...

  6. Effects of Photoperiod on the Performance, Blood Profile, Welfare Parameters, and Carcass Characteristics in Broiler Chickens

    | Contributor(s):: Kim, Hee-Jin, Son, Jiseon, Jeon, Jin-Joo, Kim, Hyun-Soo, Yun, Yeon-Seo, Kang, Hwan-Ku, Hong, Eui-Chul, Kim, Ji-Hyuk

    We studied the effects of photoperiods on the growth performance, blood profile, welfare parameters, and carcass characteristics of broilers. A total of 336 male broiler chicks (Ross 308) were randomly allocated into 4 treatments (84 birds per treatment with 4 replicates), based on the...

  7. Effects of Housing and Management Systems on the Growth, Immunity, Antioxidation, and Related Physiological and Biochemical Indicators of Donkeys in Cold Weather

    | Contributor(s):: Gao, Ruiheng, Shi, Lulu, Guo, Wenliang, Xu, Yuanqing, Jin, Xiao, Yan, Sumei, Shi, Binlin

    The study was designed with a 2 × 2 factorial experiment to evaluate the effects of growth performance, immune function, antioxidant status, blood biochemical indexes, and hormone levels of donkeys in different housing and management systems in cold weather. Twenty-four male donkeys with...

  8. The Impact of Dolphins on Children's Mental Health: Longitudinal Analyses of Three Interaction Programs

  9. Effects of group size on the behaviour, heart rate, immunity, and growth of Holstein dairy calves

    | Contributor(s):: Lv, Jing, Zhao, Xun-Wu, Su, Hang, Wang, Zhi-Peng, Wang, Chao, Li, Jian-Hong, Li, Xiang, Zhang, Run-Xiang, Bao, Jun

    This study investigated the effect of group size on the behaviour, heart rate, immunity, and growth of Holstein calves. A total of 132 calves were randomly assigned to 1 of 4 treatments from birth to 46 days of age. These included single housed (S) or group housed with three (G3), six (G6), or...
