Boars in the pleasant handling group attained a fully coordinated mating response at an earlier age and had larger testes at 160 days of age than those in...

From these studies, two sets of standardised tests were created: - the...

The way animals are handled, absence of food, milking parlour conditions and presence of human beings constitute a special stimulus to the animal. If it is positive, fear diminishes and the capacity...
