Behavioural and adrenocortical responses of dairy cows toward novel food: effects of food deprivation, milking frequency and energy density in the daily ration
Contributor(s):: Herskin, M. S., Munksgaard, L., Kristensen, A. M.
Effects of metabolic load and 12 h of food deprivation on the behavioural and physiological responses toward novel food were examined in dairy cows provided with 4 kg of carrots as novel food and observed using video for the initial 10 min. In Experiment I, effects of 12 h of food deprivation...
The development of aggressive behavior in male broiler chicks: a comparison with laying-type males and the effect of feed restriction
Contributor(s):: Mench, J. A.
Experiments were designed firstly to investigate whether selection for growth has modulated the development of aggressive behaviour in male broiler chicks, and secondly to determine the influence of feed restriction on aggression. In the first experiment, broiler males were compared with males...
Feeding pigs: divergence of behavioural and physiological requirements
Contributor(s):: Lawrence, A. B., Appleby, M. C., Macleod, H. A.
In experiments in which hunger in Large WhitexLandrace boars was measured by conditioning them to press a panel to receive 7-g rewards of food, it was concluded that restricting pigs to low food allowances results in a high level of hunger throughout the day. It is suggested that commercial food...
