    The crucial role of the periweaning period in the development of lamb feeding preferences was examined in the present study.

    | Contributor(s):: Alexander, G., Stevens, D., Bradley, L. R.

    This paper reports 2 studies in which lambs were liberally coated with oily materials (unguents) in an effort to induce ewes to accept alien lambs. In both studies, ewes were left with their own treated lambs for 22 h, and those that rejected a similarly treated alien lamb at this stage were left...

  9. The effect of essential oils showing acaricidal activity against the poultry red mite ( Dermanyssus gallinae ) on aspects of welfare and production of laying hens

    | Contributor(s):: George, Sparagano, O. A. E., Port, G., Okello, E., Shiel, R. S., Guy, J. H.
