    Contributor(s):: Orengo, J., Gidenne, T.

    Young rabbits consume milk, feed and soft faeces during the preweaning period, but the biological rhythm of intake were scarcely described. This work aimed to analyse the behaviour of ingestion and caecotrophy by analysing the stomach and rectal contents of young rabbits. Chronological samplings...

  2. Do gorillas regurgitate potentially-injurious stomach acid during 'regurgitation and reingestion?'

  3. The welfare of finishing pigs under different housing and feeding systems: liquid versus dry feeding in fully-slatted and straw-based housing

    Contributor(s):: Scott, K., Chennells, D. J., Armstrong, D., Taylor, L., Gill, B. P., Edwards, S. A.

Between April and October 2002, 1024 (Large White x Landrace) x Large White pigs, housed in pens of 32, were fed ad libitum from 34 kg to...
