  1. Exploiting flavour preferences of common marmosets to increase palatability of a dry pellet diet

    Contributor(s):: Caldwell, C. A., Watson, C. F. E., Morris, K. D.

    Although commercially available complete diets exist for common marmosets, the animals' consumption of these diets (available in dry pellet form) is typically very low. Increasing consumption of the pellet diet could have positive consequences for the welfare of the marmosets as the pellets are...

  2. Seasonal foraging behavioural compensation in reproductive wapiti hinds ( Cervus elaphus canadensis )

    Contributor(s):: Gedir, J. V., Hudson, R. J.

    Captive wapiti hinds were observed during seven periods between June 1996 and November 1997. We investigated their activity and foraging behaviour on two pastures, heavily and lightly grazed, during four phases of the reproductive cycle (early gestation, late gestation, peak lactation, and late...

  3. A brief note on the relationship between residual feed intake and aggression behaviour in juveniles of African catfish Clarias gariepinus

    Contributor(s):: Martins, C. I. M., Hillen, B., Schrama, J. W., Verreth, J. A. J.

    Individual differences in maintenance levels have been related with energetically expensive processes such as aggression. This relationship is not fully understood as on one hand individuals with higher maintenance requirements seem to be more aggressive but on the other hand have smaller...

  4. Behaviour of parturient Australian bush goats. I. Doe behaviour and kid vigour

    Contributor(s):: Allan, C. J., Holst, P. J., Hinch, G. N.

    The behaviour of multiparous does around parturition and the subsequent vigour of the kids were observed in 153 Australian bush goats supplemented with 1 of 3 levels of protein at kidding. Supplementation commenced 142 days after introduction of entire bucks and continued for 17 days. Does kidded...

  5. Effects of different feeding strategies during the winter period on behaviour and performance in mink females ( Mustela vison )

    Contributor(s):: Damgaard, B. M., Hansen, S. W., Borsting, C. F., Moller, S. H.

    Female mink used for breeding are slimmed during the winter to best prepare them for flushing immediately before the mating season. However, intensive and long-term slimming has a number of negative consequences e.g. a significant increase in stereotypies. The purpose of the study was to examine...
