Effects of social dominance, water trough location and shade availability on drinking behaviour of cows on pasture
Contributor(s):: Coimbra, Paula Araujo Dias, Machado Filho, Luiz Carlos Pinheiro, Hötzel, Maria José
The effects of water trough location and presence of shade on the behaviour of cows on pasture were investigated. The impact of social hierarchy on cows’ use of shade and the water trough was also investigated. Thirty two non-pregnant dry cows were randomly divided in four groups in a 4×4 Latin...

Shade shelter is widely used to reduce heat load for farm animals, but little research focus on the cooling effects for Dehong buffalo calves. The aim of this experiment was to evaluate the impacts of shade cooling on the physiological and behavioural parameters for Dehong buffalo calves. Shade...
Behavioral responses of piglets to darkness and shadows
Contributor(s):: Tanida, H., Miura, A., Tanaka, T., Yoshimoto, T.
26 piglets aged 1 week were used to study the effects of dark and shadows on their behavioral responses. In the first test, piglets were held in an enclosure, then allowed access to a like-sized adjacent enclosure. The piglets significantly feared staying in dark. Provision of the light beam...
Effect of solar radiation on dairy cattle behaviour, use of shade and body temperature in a pasture-based system
| Contributor(s):: Tucker, C. B., Rogers, A. R., Schutz, K. E.
Our aim was to understand how protection from solar radiation influenced the behaviour and physiology of Holstein Friesian dairy cattle. We compared the behaviour and body temperature of pastured dairy cattle kept in 1 of 4 treatments: no shade or free access to shade that blocked either 25, 50...
