Using self-selection to evaluate the acceptance of a new diet formulation by farmed fish
Contributor(s):: Carlberg, H., Cheng, Ken, Lundh, T., Brannas, E.
The evaluation of new diet composition is commonly achieved by performing time-consuming growth trials, which may negatively impact the welfare of a large number of fish if the feed is not accepted. Instead, the fish's behavioural responses to a new diet composition can be used as a first step in...
Understanding feeding patterns in growing pigs by modelling growth and motivation
Contributor(s):: Boumans, I. J. M. M., Bokkers, E. A. M., Hofstede, G. J., Boer, I. J. M. de
Feeding is an essential behaviour for body maintenance in pigs and closely related to their growth and productivity performance. Mechanisms underlying feeding behaviour in pigs are still unclear. Understanding these mechanisms can provide valuable insights into the complex interactions among...

Intake rate during meals and meal duration for sheep in different hunger states, grazing grass or white clover swards
Contributor(s):: Orr, R. J., Penning, P. D., Rutter, S. M., Champion, R. A., Harvey, A., Rook, A. J.
Meal patterns and rates of feed intake by grazing herbivores may be markedly different from those found in housed ruminants and monogastrics. Cumulative intakes over the evening meal (satiety curves) were measured using groups of sheep (Ovis aries) grazing monocultures of white clover (Trifolium...
A novel flexible method to split feeding behaviour into bouts
Contributor(s):: Howie, J. A., Tolkamp, B. J., Avendano, S., Kyriazakis, I.
Before meal patterns can be analysed properly, a biologically relevant meal criterion must be determined in order to group short-term feeding behaviour into meals. Existing methodologies are based on modelling of the frequency distributions of intervals between feeding events but these methods...
