  2. Looking beyond the Shoal: Fish Welfare as an Individual Attribute

    Contributor(s):: Torgerson-White, Lauri, Sánchez-Suárez, Walter

    Welfare is an individual attribute. In general, providing captive nonhuman animals with conditions conducive to good welfare is an idea more easily applied when dealing with few individuals. However, this becomes much harder—if not impossible—under farming conditions that may imply high numbers...

    | Contributor(s):: Elizabeth E. Jaeger

    The present study examined stress response in domestic horses (Equus caballus) to determine if horses show preference for either traditional or natural horsemanship training methods to test the hypothesis that natural horsemanship would induce less stress. Our results show that natural...

    Full-text: Available

    | Contributor(s):: Simon, Tim, Frasnelli, Elisa, Guo, Kun, Barber, Anjuli, Wilkinson, Anna, Mills, Daniel S.

    Research with humans and other animals has suggested that preferential limb use is linked to emotionality. A better understanding of this still under-explored area has the potential to establish limb preference as a marker of emotional vulnerability and risk for affective disorders. This study...

  7. Commercial broiler breeder pullet hens use perches but show no preference for perch type or height

    | Contributor(s):: Vasdal, G., Gebhardt-Henrich, S. G., Kittelsen, K. E., Tahamtani, F. M.

    An important behavioral need for laying hens is perching, but few studies have investigated perching behavior in commercial broiler breeder pullets. The aim of this study was to investigate perching behavior throughout the pullet period and preferences for different perch types and heights. We...

    | Contributor(s):: Guzmán-Pino, Sergio A., Luna, Daniela, Salazar, Laura C., Poblete-Grez, Paulina, Figueroa, Jaime

    Under natural conditions, piglets have the opportunity to interact with non-littermates before weaning. Nevertheless, in intensive production systems, piglets only have contact with penmates during lactation. Social interactions can be encouraged by removing the barrier between litters whilst the...
