    We investigated the temporal associations between the severity of foot lesions caused by footrot (FR) and the severity of lameness in sheep. Sixty sheep from one farm were monitored for five weeks. The locomotion of each sheep was scored once each week using a validated numerical rating scale of...

    Contributor(s):: Goldberg, J.

    The domestication of animal species has led to complex relations with humans entailing profound transformations, especially at the behavioural level. It is a rather difficult task to answer the question of whether the wild ancestors of a given domestic form were in some way preadapted to...

    Contributor(s):: Boissy, A., Ligout, S., Foulquie, D., Gautier, A., Moreno, C., Delval, E., Francois, D., Bouix, J.

    Modern farm practices, such as reduced contact of livestock with humans and increased size of the herd, induce a decrease of animal familiarisation to farmers so that they are more susceptible to be stressed by routine management procedures. In addition, due to the less support by humans, the...
