    In most pasture-based automatic milking systems (AMS), three-way grazing (3WG) is utilised and cows that remain in a given paddock are fetched or encouraged to the milking facility (each paddock is cleared once per day). Fetching is ideally undertaken within 15 h of the opening of each pasture...

  5. The behaviour of housed dairy cattle with and without pasture access: A review

    | Contributor(s):: Charlton, Gemma L., Rutter, S. Mark

    With more dairy cows being housed indoors, for at least part of the year, it is important to understand how housing impacts on ‘normal behaviour’ and the implications for cow welfare. For cows on pasture, nutritional requirements and climatic conditions are the major concerns, whilst indoor...

  6. The use of the technology in equitation science: A panacea or abductive science?

    | Contributor(s):: Randle, Hayley, Steenbergen, Menke, Roberts, Kirsty, Hemmings, Andrew

    Equitation encompasses a range of activities in which horses interact closely with humans. The need to ensure both horse management and equitation practice is ethical and sustainable is becoming emphasized globally. Robust and rigorous measurement is critical to objective assessment of practice....

  7. Automated real-time stress monitoring of police horses using wearable technology

    | Contributor(s):: Norton, Tomas, Piette, Deborah, Exadaktylos, Vasileios, Berckmans, Daniel

    Mounted police horses and riders are repeatedly subjected to demanding and stressful situations. Intensive selection and training of police horses is required to ensure performance, safety and welfare of the horses and their riders. At the mounted police in Brussels, Belgium, the selection of...

  8. Virtual fencing of cattle using an automated collar in a feed attractant trial

    | Contributor(s):: Campbell, Dana L. M., Lea, Jim M., Haynes, Sally J., Farrer, William J., Leigh-Lancaster, Christopher J., Lee, Caroline

    Managing grazing cattle can be challenging in environmentally-sensitive areas or when there is limited contact with and control over the animals. Virtual fences - barriers without a physical barrier represent the potential for animal guidance in locations where physical fences may be unfeasible....
