  1. Validating the use of qualitative behavioral assessment as a measure of the welfare of sheep during transport

    Contributor(s):: Wickham, S. L., Collins, T., Barnes, A. L., Miller, D. W., Beatty, D. T., Stockman, C. A., Blache, D., Wemelsfelder, F., Fleming, P. A.

    We tested the application of qualitative behavioral assessment (QBA) as a welfare assessment tool. Sheep were exposed to road transport treatments, and behavioral expressions were compared between experimental treatments and validated by correlation with physiological measures. We compared...

  2. Killing of spent laying hens using CO 2 in poultry barns

    Contributor(s):: Berg, C., Yngvesson, J., Nimmermark, S., Sandstrom, V., Algers, B.

    In Sweden, laying hens are killed using the following methods: (i) traditional slaughter; (ii) on-farm with CO 2 in a mobile container combined with a grinder; or (iii) with CO 2 inside the barn. The number of hens killed using the latter method has increased. During these killings a veterinarian...

  3. Fel d 1 and Can f 1 in settled dust and airborne Fel d 1 in allergen avoidance day-care centres for atopic children in relation to number of pet-owners, ventilation and general cleaning

    Contributor(s):: Wickman, M., Egmar, A., Emenius, G., Almqvist, C., Berglind, N., Larsson, P., Van Hage-Hamsten, M.

  4. Behavioural analysis of a nociceptive event in fish: comparisons between three species demonstrate specific responses

    Full-text: Available

    | Contributor(s):: Reilly, S. C., Quinn, J. P., Cossins, A. R., Sneddon, L. U.

    Nociception is the sensory mechanism by which potentially harmful stimuli are detected in animals and humans. The behavioural responses to noxious stimulation have been studied in two fish species thus far. However, since species-specific differences are seen in mammals, more species need to be...

  5. An ethicist's commentary on the veterinarian receiving complaints from swine barn workers concerning respiratory problems

    | Contributor(s):: Rollin, B. E.

  6. Effects of temporary power failure on temperature, humidity and the activity of pigs in an experimental piggery

    | Contributor(s):: Boon, C. R., Hague, P., Walser, E. S.

    The changes occurring in an experimental piggery during temporary power failure, which stopped controlled ventilation, were recorded in six experiments. The changes were influenced by: (1) the position of the emergency ventilation panel--whether it fell out or stayed in; (2) the activity of the...

  7. The transport of animals by roll-on/roll-off vessels

    | Contributor(s):: Brown, A. M.

  8. A review of welfare in cattle, sheep and pig lairages, with emphasis on stocking rates, ventilation and noise

    | Contributor(s):: Weeks, C. A.

    Appropriate space allowances for animals are yet to be specifically determined for lairage. Space allowances that may be suitable for animals in lairage are suggested, based on reviewed studies of animals in transport, lairage and on farm. The longer animals are in lairage the more space they...

  9. Housing environment alters delayed-type hypersensitivity and corticosterone concentrations of individually housed male C57BL/6 mice

    | Contributor(s):: Neigh, G. N., Bowers, S. L., Korman, B., Nelson, R. J.

    Housing conditions can alter both the physiology and behaviour of laboratory animals. Forced-air-ventilated micro-isolation systems increase the efficient use of space, decrease the incidence of disease among laboratory rodents, and provide better working conditions for animal care staff;...

  10. Public attitudes to the welfare of broiler chickens

    | Contributor(s):: Hall, C., Sandilands, V.

    This paper reports results from two workshops held in York, England that investigated public attitudes towards the welfare of broiler chickens. At the outset the majority of participants admitted that they knew little about how broiler chickens are reared and were shocked at some of the facts...

  11. Individually ventilated cages and rodent welfare: report of the 2002 RSPCA/UFAW rodent welfare group meeting

    | Contributor(s):: Hawkins, P., Anderson, D., Applebee, K., Key, D., Wallace, J., Milite, G., Clark, J. M., Hubrecht, R., Jennings, M.

    The RSPCA/UFAW Rodent Welfare Group holds a one-day meeting every autumn so that its members can discuss current welfare research and exchange views on rodent welfare issues. The 2002 meeting focused on welfare issues associated with housing rodents in individually ventilated cages (IVCs)....
