  14. Test of temperament in mink is influenced by a shelf in the front of the cage and the stimulus size rather than by features of the test person

    Contributor(s):: Henriksen, Britt I. F., Møller, Steen H., Malmkvist, Jens

    The study evaluates the effect of different test conditions on the temperament of farm mink, using the stick test. We hypothesised that mink perceive some test conditions as more fear eliciting. Specifically, we hypothesised that (A) the dimension of the presented stimulus in the test, a wooden...

  15. A consideration of the role of biology and test design as confounding factors in judgement bias tests

    Contributor(s):: Whittaker, Alexandra L., Barker, Timothy H.

    The assessment of positive emotional states in animals has been advanced considerably through the use of judgement bias testing. JBT methods have now been reported in a range of species. Generally, these tests show good validity as ascertained through use of corroborating methods of affective...

  16. The effect of qualitative feed restriction in broiler breeder pullets on fear and motivation to explore

    Contributor(s):: Tahamtani, Fernanda M., Riber, Anja B.

    Restrictively fed broiler breeders are known to have increased motivation to explore and reduced fearfulness because hunger increases the motivation to search for and to acquire food, forcing the birds to face and engage with aversive stimuli that they would otherwise avoid. The aim of this study...

  17. Reliability of Fear Assessment in Growing Pigs Exposed to a Novel Object Test in Commercial Conditions

    Contributor(s):: Dalmau, Antoni, Mainau, Eva, Velarde, Antonio

    The objective of this study was to assess the reliability and feasibility of a novel object test assessing fear in pigs in commercial conditions. A total of 18 commercial farms were visited, and 321 pens housing 4,220 growing pigs were assessed. Three balloons were used as a novel stimulus....

  18. Temperamental turkeys: Reliability of behavioural responses to four tests of fear

    Contributor(s):: Erasmus, Marisa, Swanson, Janice

    Open field (OF), tonic immobility (TI), voluntary approach (VA) and novel object (NO) tests are used to assess fear responses, activity levels and coping styles of poultry. Fear tests are also used as part of welfare assessment programmes. Little is known about fear responses of turkeys....

  19. Responses to novel situations of female and castrated male pigs with divergent social breeding values and different backtest classifications in barren and straw-enriched housing

    Contributor(s):: Reimert, Inonge, Rodenburg, T. Bas, Ursinus, Winanda W., Kemp, Bas, Bolhuis, J. Elizabeth

    The growth of a pig is not only affected by its own genes, but also by the genes of its pen mates. This indirect effect on a pig's growth is represented as social breeding value (SBV) in a newly developed breeding model. It has been hypothesized that pigs could affect their pen mates’ growth...

  20. Linking cortisol responsiveness and aggressive behaviour in gilthead seabream Sparus aurata: Indication of divergent coping styles

    Contributor(s):: Castanheira, Maria Filipa, Herrera, Marcelino, Costas, Benjamín, Conceição, Luís E. C., Martins, Catarina I. M.

    Farmed animals, including fish, often exhibit a pronounced individual variation in stress coping styles with proactive and reactive individuals differing in a variety of neuroendocrine and behavioural responses. In this study we disclosed that individual differences in cortisol responsiveness...
