  4. Effects of Macleaya cordata Extract on Blood Biochemical Indices and Intestinal Flora in Heat-Stressed Mice

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

    Heat stress (HS) leads to disturbance of homeostasis and gut microbiota. Macleaya cordata extract (MCE) has anti-inflammatory, antibacterial, and gut health maintenance properties. Still, the specific effects of MCE on blood biochemical indices and gut microbiota homeostasis in heat-stressed mice...

  5. To wallow or nurse: Sows housed outdoors have distinctive approaches to thermoregulation in gestation and lactation

    | Contributor(s):: Baert, Sarah, Aubé, Lydiane, Haley, Derek B., Bergeron, Renée, Devillers, Nicolas

    The objective of this study was to determine which behaviours may be important for thermoregulation when gestating and lactating sows are housed outdoors in Qu├ębec, Canada during the summer. We kept six groups of four Yorkshire-Landrace sows, from July to September 2018, in outdoor paddocks...

  6. Feasibility and reliability of the AWIN welfare assessment protocol for dairy goats in semi-extensive farming conditions

    | Contributor(s):: Battini, M., Renna, M., Giammarino, M., Battaglini, L., Mattiello, S.

    The aim of this study was to test the feasibility and reliability of the Animal Welfare Indicators (AWIN) protocol for welfare assessment of dairy goats when applied to semi-extensive farming conditions. We recruited 13 farms located in the NW Italian Alps where three assessors individually and...

  7. The effect of hutch compass direction on primary heat stress responses in dairy calves in a continental region

    | Contributor(s):: Bakony, M., Kiss, G., Kovacs, L., Jurkovich, V.

  8. Provision of Additional Cup Drinkers Mildly Alleviated Moderate Heat Stress Conditions in Broiler Chickens

    | Contributor(s):: Iyasere, Oluwaseun S., Bateson, Melissa, Beard, Andrew P., Guy, Jonathan H.

    Sixty-four broilers of a commercial strain in a 2 × 2 factorial design with two environmental conditions: normal (N; 20°C, 50% RH) or MHS (30°C, 70% RH for 6 h/day for 3 consecutive days), and two drinker treatments; standard (B; a bell drinker/pen) or additional (A; as B + two cup...

  9. Thermal Micro-Environment during Poultry Transportation in South Central United States

    Full-text: Available

    | Contributor(s):: Douglas J. Aldridge, Kaushik Luthra, Yi Liang, Karen Christensen, Susan E. Watkins, Colin G. Scanes

    This observational study was conducted to characterize the thermal micro- climate that broilers experienced in commercial poultry transporters under various weather conditions and typical management practices in the South Central USA. We continuously monitored temperature and relative humidity...

  10. Behavioral and hematological responses of broiler chickens administered with betaine and ascorbic acid during hot-dry season

    | Contributor(s):: Egbuniwe, Ifeanyichukwu C., Ayo, Joseph O., Kawu, Mohammed U., Mohammed, Aliyu

    Heat stress is a major problem in poultry production in tropical regions. Assessing the impact of thermally stressful environmental conditions on the welfare of broiler chickens is of great importance. Behavioral responses in a novel environment and hematology of broiler chickens administered...

  13. Evaluation of Three Hydration Strategies in Detection Dogs Working in a Hot Environment

    | Contributor(s):: Cynthia M. Otto, Elizabeth Hare, Jess L. Nord, Shannon M. Palermo, Kathleen M. Kelsey, Tracy A. Darling, Kasey Schmidt, Destiny Coleman

    Physical activity in hot environments can increase the risk of heat stress or heat stroke in dogs. Heat tolerance is influenced by acclimatization to the environment, physical fitness, and hydration state. Three common strategies to promote hydration in working dogs are free access to water (W),...

  14. Behavioral changes and feathering score in heat stressed broiler chickens fed diets containing different levels of propolis

    | Contributor(s):: Mahmoud, U. T., Abdel-Rahman, M. A. M., Darwish, M. H. A., Applegate, T. J., Cheng, H.

    This experiment was conducted to evaluate the effects of dietary supplementation of green Brazilian propolis on behavioral patterns and feather condition of heat stressed broiler chickens. Five hundred and four (504) male Ross 708 broiler chicks at 15-day old were randomly allotted to six dietary...
