    Full-text: Available

    | Contributor(s):: Oluwakamisi F. Akinmoladun, Voster Muchenje, Fabian N. Fon, Conference T. Mpendulo

    The availability and sustainability of suitable and good quality drinking water is a global concern. Such uncertainties threaten livestock production with an attendant ripple effect on food security. Small ruminants, including sheep and goats, appear to be promising to smallholder farmers in...

    | Contributor(s):: Zambra, Noelia, Lacuesta, Lorena, Orihuela, Agustín, Ungerfeld, Rodolfo

  14. Design and methodology of choice feeding experiments with ruminant livestock

    | Contributor(s):: Meier, Janina Sarah, Kreuzer, Michael, Marquardt, Svenja

    The purpose of this review is to describe design and methodology of choice feeding experiments applied in ruminant livestock by taking into account their potential for different purposes and animal-, feed-, and set-up specific aspects. The first choice feeding experiments took place around 1900...

  15. Decision-making of goats when exposed to choice feeding: Triggered by taste or smell?

    | Contributor(s):: Scherer, R., Gerlach, K., Südekum, K. H.

    Animals recognise known forages. However, it is unclear whether recognition is mainly based on sensory characteristics linked to postingestive feedback or whether the latter is activated each time before a choice is made. Moreover, knowledge is scarce regarding the duration of the memory process...

  16. Using a three-axis accelerometer to identify and classify sheep behaviour at pasture

    | Contributor(s):: Alvarenga, F. A. P., Borges, I., PalkoviĨ, L., Rodina, J., Oddy, V. H., Dobos, R. C.

The current research was conducted in an open oak forest in Megalo Dereio region, northeastern Greece...

  18. Impact of structural and cognitive enrichment on the learning performance, behavior and physiology of dwarf goats (Capra aegagrus hircus)

    | Contributor(s):: Oesterwind, Susann, Nürnberg, Gerd, Puppe, Birger, Langbein, Jan
