  1. Exploring the use of complementary and alternative approaches to health care on UK dairy farms

    Contributor(s):: Crouch, K., Cabral, C., Cramer, H., Rees, G., Sharp, D., Barrett, D. C.

  2. Social associations in lactating dairy cows housed in a robotic milking system

    Contributor(s):: Marumo, Joyce Ledile, Fisher, David Newton, Lusseau, David, Mackie, Maitland, Speakman, John Roger, Hambly, Catherine

    Dairy cows are gregarious animals that are able to thrive in a stable social group and form long-lasting dyadic relationships. However, in the modern UK commercial dairy industry, cows are commonly regrouped/relocated as part of the management plan, forcing the cows to change social partners...

  3. Associations between dairy herds' qualitative behavior and aspects of herd health, stockperson and farm factors-a cross-sectional exploration

    Full-text: Available

    | Contributor(s):: Ebinghaus, A., Matull, K., Knierim, U., Ivemeyer, S.

    The affective state is an integrated aspect of farm animal welfare, which is understood as the animals' perception of their living environment and of their internal biological functioning. The aim of this cross-sectional study was to explore animal-internal and external factors potentially...

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

    Full-text: Available

    | 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...

  5. Relationships between body temperatures and behaviours in lactating dairy cows

    | Contributor(s):: Uddin, Jashim, Phillips, Clive J. C., Auboeuf, Mathieu, McNeill, David M.

  6. Negative attitudes of Danish dairy farmers to their livestock correlates negatively with animal welfare

    | Contributor(s):: Andreasen, S. N., Sandoe, P., Waiblinger, S., Forkman, B.

  7. Can on-farm animal welfare explain relative production differences between dairy herds?

    | Contributor(s):: Frondelius, L., Jauhiainen, L., Niskanen, O., Mughal, M., Sairanen, A.

  8. The Welfare Quality (R) assessment protocol: how can it be adapted to family farming dual purpose cattle raised under extensive systems in tropical conditions?

    | Contributor(s):: Hernandez, A., Berg, C., Eriksson, S., Edstam, L., Orihuela, A., Leon, H., Galina, C.

  9. Welfare assessment in traditional mountain dairy farms: above and beyond resource-based measures

    | Contributor(s):: Zuliani, A., Romanzin, A., Corazzin, M., Salvador, S., Abrahantes, J. C., Bovolenta, S.

  10. Effects of short-term exposure to drinking water contaminated with manure on water and feed intake, production and lying behaviour in dairy cattle

    | Contributor(s):: Schütz, Karin E., Huddart, Frances J., Cox, Neil R.

  11. Associations between On-farm Welfare, Milk Production, and Reproductive Performance in Dairy Herds in Northwestern Spain

    | Contributor(s):: Bugueiro, Ana, Fouz, Ramiro, Diéguez, Francisco J.

  12. Effect of milk allowance on the suitability of automated behavioural and physiological measures as early disease indicators in calves

    | Contributor(s):: Lowe, Gemma L., Sutherland, Mhairi A., Waas, Joseph R., Cox, Neil R., Schaefer, Allan L., Stewart, Mairi

  13. Managing large litters: Selected measures of performance in 10 intermediate nurse sows and welfare of foster piglets

    | Contributor(s):: Kobek-Kjeldager, Cecilie, Moustsen, Vivi A., Theil, Peter K., Pedersen, Lene J.

    Selection for increased litter size has led to the use of so-called nurse sows in several European countries. A nurse sow receives new piglets after having weaned her own. Nurse sows are often made in two-steps. In the two-step strategy, new-born piglets are given to a sow 4–7 days into...

  14. Relation between stockperson behavior toward cows in a holding area and milk yields

    | Contributor(s):: Saito, H., Seo, T.

  15. Early social experiences do not affect first lactation production traits, longevity or locomotion reaction to group change in female dairy cattle

    | Contributor(s):: Valníčková, Barbora, Šárová, Radka, Špinka, Marek

    Under natural conditions cows and their calves live together. In dairy practice, calves are separated from their mothers within hours after birth and then housed individually. This study investigated the effects of the presence of the dam during the colostrum feeding period and subsequent group...

  16. Behavior and Performance of Dairy Cows After Transfer from Tied to Cubicle Housing

    | Contributor(s):: Pavlenko, Anne, Lidfors, Lena, Arney, David R., Kaart, Tanel, Aland, Andres

    Behavior and performance changes when tied dairy cows were moved to a loose housing system in a cubicle system were investigated. Behavioral observations were made for 3 consecutive days in 3 periods after transition. The cows (n = 105) were observed on 18 sampling occasions for 1 month....

  17. Group housing with electronically controlled crates for lactating sows. Effect on farrowing, suckling and activity behavior of sows and piglets

    | Contributor(s):: Bohnenkamp, Anna-Lena, Meyer, Christian, Müller, Karin, Krieter, Joachim

    The aim of the present study was the analysis of behavioral parameters of sows and piglets in two different farrowing systems. Data of 132 crossbred-sows were collected. Conventional single housing with farrowing crates (SH) was compared to a group housing system (GH) with six single pens,...

  18. Genetic and non-genetic factors associated with milking order in lactating dairy cows

    | Contributor(s):: Berry, Donagh P., McCarthy, John

    The ability to rapidly identify temporal deviations of an animal from its norm will be important in the management of individual cows in large herds. Furthermore, predictors of genetic merit for especially health traits are useful to augment the accuracy of selection, and thus genetic gain, in...

  19. Avoidance-related behavioural variables and their relationship to milk yield in pasture-based dairy cows

    | Contributor(s):: Dodzi, Madodana S., Muchenje, Voster

    The behavioural responses of Jersey, Friesland and crossbred cows to humans were determined by recording their avoidance distance scores (AD), exit speed (ES), pen score (PS), pen behaviour score (PBS), platform score (PLS), and the occurrence of kicking (KCK) and stepping (SPG) during milking in...
