    Full-text: Available

    | Contributor(s):: Cherie Ann Soprano

    Passive behavior (PB) is a behavioral disturbance that affects 61 to 88 percent of nursing home residents (NHRs) with dementia. PB in persons with dementia (PWD) often leads to such negative consequences as, social isolation, loss of physical functioning, excess disability, and further cognitive...

  7. Effects of group housing systems on behaviour and production performance in farmed juvenile mink (Mustela vison)

    | Contributor(s):: Pedersen, V., Jeppesen, L. L., Jeppesen, N.

    Juvenile mink were kept in two different group housing systems and their behaviour and physiology compared to that of juvenile mink kept traditionally in pairs. One group housing system was made by adjoining three traditional cages (row system) and the other by stacking a slightly smaller cage on...

  8. Effects of pre-haul management and transport duration on beef calf performance and welfare

    | Contributor(s):: Schwartzkopf-Genswein, K. S., Booth-McLean, M. E., Shah, M. A., Entz, T., Bach, S. J., Mears, G. J., Schaefer, A. L., Cook, N., Church, J., McAllister, T. A.

    Behavioural and physiological indicators of stress as well as growth performance, and morbidity rates were assessed in 174 steer calves (220+or-37 kg) for 30 days after transport from ranch-to-feedlot. The calves were conditioned (C) or not (NC), and subjected to short- (2.7 h, S) or long-hauling...
