    Full-text: Available

    | Contributor(s):: Deborah L. Wells, Louise J. McDowell

    Cat breeds differ enormously in their behavioural disposition, a factor that can impact on the pet-owner relationship, with indirect consequences for animal welfare. This study examined whether lateral bias, in the form of paw preference, can be used as a tool for assessing breed differences in...

    | Contributor(s):: Kasperek, Kornel, Zięba, Grzegorz, Pluta, Adrian, Ziemiańska, Agnieszka, Rozempolska-Rucińska, Iwona

    Our previous study showed significant behavioural differences between breeds of laying hens. Birds differed in their excitability, reactivity, decision-making speed, behavioural strategy, and interest in elements of the surroundings. The results of our investigations and studies conducted by...

  17. The effects of a choice test between food rewards and human interaction in a herd of domestic horses of varying breeds and experiences

    | Contributor(s):: Kieson, Emily, Felix, Crystal, Webb, Summer, Abramson, Charles I.

    Humans use food rewards as positive reinforcement for training horses, but there is little evidence to show that human interaction (scratching or patting) has reward value or if domestic horses perceive human touch as social bonding. Most equine training is based on negative reinforcement, but...

  18. Cow in Motion: A review of the impact of housing systems on movement opportunity of dairy cows and implications on locomotor activity

    | Contributor(s):: Shepley, Elise, Lensink, Joop, Vasseur, Elsa

    As humans, we recognize the importance of exercise. We go to the gym, walk our dogs, and ride our horses. Even our hamsters get a wheel to run on. Considering this, it is surprising that, when it comes to the production animals that make up the bulk of domestic animals, the concept of ‘exercise’...

  19. Range use is related to free-range broiler chickens’ behavioral responses during food and social conditioned place preference tests

    | Contributor(s):: Ferreira, Vitor Hugo Bessa, Germain, Karine, Calandreau, Ludovic, Guesdon, Vanessa

    Free-range broiler chickens usually show an uneven spatial utilization of an outdoor range. Due to behavioral and cognitive between-individual differences, some animals may be driven to associate food and conspecifics more strongly to the barn, causing them to be less prone to explore the range....

    Full-text: Available

    | Contributor(s):: Naomi D. Harvey, James A. Oxley, Giuliana Miguel-Pacheco, Emma M. Gosling, Mark Farnworth

    Domesticated rabbits typically exhibit shorter, flatter skulls than their wild counterparts (brachycephalism). However, brachycephaly is associated with considerable health problems, including problems with dentition. The aim of this study was to establish which type of rabbit face people...
