Animal-Based Measurements to Assess the Welfare of Dairy Cull Cows during Pre-Slaughter

Clinical and behavioural consequences of on-farm mixing of cull sows after weaning
| Contributor(s):: Herskin, Mette S., Holm, Cathrine, Thodberg, Karen
In modern pig production up to 50% of the sows are slaughtered each year. Typically, the period from the decision to cull and until a sow is slaughtered consists of a stay in an on-farm pick-up pen (hours to weeks), transport (eventually passing buying stations or similar) and lairage. However,...
Animal welfare in the U.S. slaughter industry-a focus on fed cattle

Case Study: Horse Drawn Carriages in Philadelphia
| Contributor(s):: Bibi Khan, Michael Jones, Hamid Bertal, Regina Tendayi
Hypothesis Horse & Carriage ride business is not sustainable. Supply & Demand: Awareness of inhumane treatment of carriage horses will lead to the decline of demand for the rides which leads to decline in revenue. This is not sustainable.
Physiological and welfare consequences of transport, relocation, and acclimatization of chimpanzees (Pan troglodytes)
| Contributor(s):: Schapiro, Steven J., Lambeth, Susan P., Jacobsen, Kirsten Rosenmaj, Williams, Lawrence E., Nehete, Bharti N., Nehete, Pramod N.
Manipulations of the environments of captive nonhuman primates often have welfare consequences to the animals, including behavioral effects, and for certain manipulations, physiological effects as well. The processes of transporting, relocating, and acclimatizing nonhuman primates across...
Effect of short road journeys on behaviour and some blood variables related to welfare in young bulls
| Contributor(s):: Cafazzo, Simona, Magnani, Diego, Calà, Pietro, Razzuoli, Elisabetta, Gerardi, Gabriele, Bernardini, Daniele, Amadori, Massimo, Costa, Leonardo Nanni
Many studies have focused on the transport of cattle to fattening farms or to slaughterhouses but there is little information concerning the transport of young bulls delivered to the genetic test stations for selection. Due to the high expected value of young AI candidate bulls, their transport...
A Survey-Based Investigation of Human Factors Associated With Transport Related Injuries in Horses
| Contributor(s):: Barbara Padalino, Chris W. Rogers, Danielle Guiver, Kirrilly R. Thompson, Christopher B. Riley
Injuries resulting from road transport are common in horses and are a potential welfare concern, as well as, a source of economic loss. An online cross sectional survey was used to determine the prevalence of road transport related injuries to horses in New Zealand and the association of human...
Cage size affects comfort, safety and the experienced security of working dogs in cars
| Contributor(s):: Skånberg, Lena, Gauffin, Oskar, Norling, Yezica, Lindsjö, Johan, Keeling, Linda J.
Working dogs often spend a large amount of their time in cars. It has been hypothesized that a larger compartment in the car would be more comfortable for the dog, but that a smaller space could be safer, especially while driving. This presents a potential conflict. In this study, working dogs of...
Carrier training cats reduces stress on transport to a veterinary practice
| Contributor(s):: Pratsch, Lydia, Mohr, Natalia, Palme, Rupert, Rost, Jennifer, Troxler, Josef, Arhant, Christine
Transport to and visiting a veterinary practice frequently is stressful for cats and their owners. Handling a fearful cat can be a challenge for the veterinary team and stress can influence physiological parameters. This study investigated whether carrier training reduced stress during a 10 min...
Effects of space allowance and simulated sea transport motion on behavioural and physiological responses of sheep
| Contributor(s):: Navarro, Grisel, Col, Ramazan, Phillips, Clive J. C.
Transporting sheep by sea exposes them to some prolonged floor motions, and their responses may depend on their space allowance. We simulated sea motion in a crate with a moveable and programmable floor, to measure behaviour and physiological responses. Nine sheep were exposed in groups of 3 for...
