  1. The effects of feeding space on the behavioural responses of cattle during rest periods offered as part of long-distance transportation

    Contributor(s):: Ross, M., Widowski, T. M., Haley, D. B.

  2. Surveying Attitudes toward Reptiles on Roads: Questionnaire Responses Do Not Directly Translate to Behavioral Action

    Contributor(s):: Wolfe, Ashleigh K., Fleming, Patricia A., Bateman, Philip W.

    Roads pose significant threats to reptiles, and understanding the varying perceptual biases of motorists to different taxa may help determine management strategies for urban roads around important refuges such as wetlands. We surveyed Western Australian motorists online, asking them to rank their...

  3. Flooring and driving conditions during road transport influence the behavioural expression of cattle

    Contributor(s):: Stockman, Catherine A., Collins, Teresa, Barnes, Anne L., Miller, David, Wickham, Sarah L., Beatty, David T., Blache, Dominique, Wemelsfelder, Francoise, Fleming, Patricia A.

    This study examined whether observers could distinguish between cattle that were exposed to various road transport conditions: Experiment 1 compared a manipulated flooring treatment (non-grip flooring, NG) with a control transport event (grip flooring, G) and Experiment 2 compared a manipulated...

  4. Contradiction and Complacency Shape Attitudes towards the Toll of Roads on Wildlife

    Contributor(s):: Daniel Ramp, Vanessa K. Wilson, David B. Croft

    Most people in the world now live in cities. Urbanisation simultaneously isolates people from nature and contributes to biodiversity decline. As cities expand, suburban development and the road infrastructure to support them widens their impact on wildlife. Even so, urban communities, especially...

  5. Cost-effective approach to reducing collisions with elk by fencing between existing highway structures

    Contributor(s):: Gagnon, Jeffrey W., Loberger, Chad D., Sprague, Scott C., Ogren, Kari S., Boe, Susan L., Schweinsburg, Raymond E.

  6. Recommended management strategies to limit anthropogenic noise impacts on greater sage-grouse in Wyoming

    Contributor(s):: Patricelli, Gail L., Blickley, Jessica L., Hooper, Stacie L.

  7. Amphibian Mortality on Roads: A Case Study in Santa Cruz Long-toed Salamander Habitat

    Contributor(s):: Michael Thomas Hobbs

    Amphibian populations have been declining at higher rates than bird and mammal populations. Agriculture, urbanization, including roads, and resource extraction continue to put pressure on all species. Roads in particular, are major sources of mortality. The Santa Cruz long-toed salamander...

  8. Validating the use of qualitative behavioral assessment as a measure of the welfare of sheep during transport

    Contributor(s):: Wickham, S. L., Collins, T., Barnes, A. L., Miller, D. W., Beatty, D. T., Stockman, C. A., Blache, D., Wemelsfelder, F., Fleming, P. A.

    We tested the application of qualitative behavioral assessment (QBA) as a welfare assessment tool. Sheep were exposed to road transport treatments, and behavioral expressions were compared between experimental treatments and validated by correlation with physiological measures. We compared...

  9. Does short-term road transport affect the locomotion score of dairy cows?

    Contributor(s):: Thomsen, P. T., Sorensen, J. T.

  10. Loading density and welfare of goat kids during long distance road transport

    Contributor(s):: Hindle, V. A., Reimert, H. G. M., Werf, J. T. N. van der, Lambooij, E.

  11. Shrink and mortality of beef cattle during long distance transportation

    Contributor(s):: Teke, B.

  12. The effects of driving events on the stability and resting behaviour of cattle, young calves and pigs

    Contributor(s):: Cockram, M. S., Spence, J. Y.

  13. Degrees of Anthropocentrism in Accounts of Wildlife-Vehicle Collisions

    Contributor(s):: Kuha, M.

  14. Horse preference for orientation during transport and the effect of orientation on balancing ability

    Contributor(s):: Gibbs, A. E., Friend, T. H.

    Twelve horses transported in a 16-m long commercial straight-deck, topless trailer (16 wheels) were either: tied to the left side of the trailer (TL), tied to the right (TR) or loose (L). Four horses at a time were transported 4 laps around a 3.6-km rectangular course, reversing direction each...

  15. A survey of bobby calf marketing in 1976/77

    Contributor(s):: Plumb, J. M.

  16. Changes in the behaviour of cattle during and after road transportation

    Contributor(s):: Kent, J. E., Ewbank, R.

    Five 8-9 month-old castrated male cattle, each weighing about 225 kg, were transported in a trailer for 594 km by road. The journey took 18 h, including 5 stops totalling 2 h. The space allowance was 0.9 m2/animal in the trailer. Another 5 similar animals were penned at 0.93 m2/animal and...

  17. Transportation of cattle by road

    Contributor(s):: Tarrant, P. V.

    Cattle are transported by road, rail, sea and air for purposes of breeding, fattening or slaughter. In terms of volume transported and economic importance, the most significant trade is the road transportation of cattle to slaughter and is the main subject of this review. Recent research has...

  18. Long-distance transport of pregnant heifers by truck

    Contributor(s):: Lambooy, E., Hulsegge, B.

  19. The reaction of young bulls to short-haul road transport

    Contributor(s):: Kenny, F. J., Tarrant, P. V.

    In 15-month-old Friesian bulls social interactions showed a marked increase above resting values in response to the simplest treatment, that of re-penning in a new environment. As the complexity of the treatment was increased, the frequency of social interactions decreased. Thus, the frequency of...

  20. The effect of routine handling on the ease of moving and loading of pigs
