  14. Development of a serving capacity test for beef bulls

    Contributor(s):: Blockey, M. A. de B.

    The serving capacity of 12 Hereford and Aberdeen-Angus bulls was measured in a simulated 19-day pasture mating. This varied amongst bulls from 2 to 105 services. A yard test was then devised in which the bulls' performance correlated highly with their serving capacity during pasture mating. The...

  15. Further studies on the serving capacity test for beef bulls

    Contributor(s):: Blockey, M. A. de B.

    In 4 experiments to investigate aspects of the conduct of the serving capacity test for beef bulls, it was found that the 60-min yard test could be shortened to 40 or even 30 min without sacrificing the test's accuracy (the correlation between serving capacities for the 40- and 60-min tests was...

  16. Modification of a serving capacity test for beef bulls

    Contributor(s):: Blockey, M. A. de B.

    Five sets of identical twin bulls were used to determine how the various components of the serving capacity test influenced the serving capacity a bull showed in the test. It was found that females must be restrained in service crates rather than by a halter. Females restrained in this way need...

  17. A comparison of behaviour in test and in everyday life: evidence of three consistent boldness-related personality traits in dogs

    Contributor(s):: Svartberg, K.

    Six specific personality traits - playfulness, chase-proneness, curiosity/fearlessness, sociability, aggressiveness, and distance-playfulness - and a broad boldness dimension have been suggested for dogs in previous studies based on data collected in a standardized behavioural test ("dog...

  18. Assessing the human-animal relationship in farmed species: a critical review

    Full-text: Available

    | Contributor(s):: Waiblinger, S., Boivin, X., Pedersen, V., Tosi, M. V., Janczak, A. M., Visser, E. K., Jones, R. B.

    The present paper focuses on six main issues. First, we briefly explain why an increased understanding of the human-animal relationship (HAR) is an essential component of any strategy intended to improve the welfare of farmed animals and their stockpersons. Second, we list the main internal and...

  19. Consistency of dogs' reactions to threatening cues of an unfamiliar person

    | Contributor(s):: Vas, J., Topal, J., Gyori, B., Miklosi, A.

    Reliability is one of the most important aspects of the behaviour observations measuring personality traits in animals. The most fundamental way to test reliability is the assessment of the test-retest consistency. On the other hand, in situations where social interaction between a human...

  20. Do domestic pigs prefer short-term to medium-term confinement?

    | Contributor(s):: Spinka, M., Duncan, I. J. H., Widowski, T. M.

    A preference test was used to demonstrate that gilts have the ability to associate 2 sets of neutral cues with 2 different periods of confinement and water deprivation and to anticipate the long-term consequences of their choice in the test. 12 gilts housed in 2 large, straw-bedded pens were...
