    Contributor(s):: Miller, Lance J., Ivy, Jamie A., Vicino, Greg A., Schork, Ivana G.

    To improve the welfare of nonhuman animals under professional care, zoological institutions are continuously utilizing new methods to identify factors that lead to optimal welfare. Comparative methods have historically been used in the field of evolutionary biology but are increasingly being...

  11. Food Quality in Lusaka National Park: Tracking Mortality in Black Lechwe Antelopes

    Contributor(s):: Nyambe, Kenneth, Chama, Lackson, Siachoono, Stanford, Mubemba, Benjamin

    Translocation is one of the fundamental tools in wildlife management but only if appropriately undertaken. In 2009, 30 black lechwe antelopes were suddenly translocated from the State House Habitat (STH) into the newly established Lusaka National Park (LNP). However, within 4 months of being...

  12. Providing ‘get-away bunks’ and other enrichments to primiparous adult female mink improves their reproductive productivity

    Contributor(s):: Buob, Misha, Meagher, Rebecca, Dawson, Lauren, Palme, Rupert, Haley, Derek, Mason, Georgia

    This study investigated whether simple, cheap enrichments – ‘get-away bunks’ (a wire mesh semi-cylinder attached to the cage ceiling) and small manipulable objects (balls and suspended chewing items) – could improve welfare and productivity in nursing mink dams (Neovison vison) in commercial farm...

  13. Association between taxonomic relatedness and interspecific mortality in captive ungulates

    Contributor(s):: Hanzlíková, Veronika, Pluháček, Jan, Čulík, Luděk

    Interspecific aggressive interactions are known among a variety of animals including ungulates. Nevertheless, most studies on interspecific interactions in ungulates involve case reports without testing any specific hypotheses. We tested two mutually exclusive hypotheses; that mortality rate in...

  14. Associations between qualitative behaviour assessments and measures of leg health, fear and mortality in Norwegian broiler chicken flocks

    Contributor(s):: Muri, Karianne, Stubsjøen, Solveig Marie, Vasdal, Guro, Moe, Randi Oppermann, Granquist, Erik Georg

    Qualitative behavioural assessments (QBA) is an animal-based welfare measure that has been included in several on-farm welfare assessment protocols, including the Welfare Quality® (WQ) protocol for poultry. However, there is a scarcity of information about how it relates to other animal-based...

  18. Management strategies in farrowing house to improve piglet pre-weaning survival and growth

    | Contributor(s):: Vila, R. M., Tummaruk, P.

    Post-partum and lactation are the most complex periods in the swine production chain. Newborn pigs are highly vulnerable due to relatively low body weight at birth and physiological immaturity. Most of the management strategies performed in farrowing houses are oriented to ensure a proper level...
