  4. Heart rate and stress hormone responses of sheep to road transport following two different loading procedures

    Contributor(s):: Parrott, R. F., Hall, S. J. G., Lloyd, D. M.

    The physiological responses induced in 18 sheep by 2 different loading techniques followed by a short road journey were investigated. All animals were prepared with venous catheters, to minimize the disturbing effects of blood sampling, and 9 sheep were fitted with heart rate monitors. The...
