    | Contributor(s):: Gao, Ruiheng, Shi, Lulu, Guo, Wenliang, Xu, Yuanqing, Jin, Xiao, Yan, Sumei, Shi, Binlin

    The study was designed with a 2 × 2 factorial experiment to evaluate the effects of growth performance, immune function, antioxidant status, blood biochemical indexes, and hormone levels of donkeys in different housing and management systems in cold weather. Twenty-four male donkeys with...

  4. Historical development of horse breeds

    | Contributor(s):: Tuncer, S. S., Kozat, S.

    This study was conducted to examine the historical development process of modern horse breeds. Horses are among the few species that have managed to become domesticated on earth. The domestication of horses took place after dogs, goats, sheep, pigs, reindeer and poultry. It is accepted that the...

  5. The effect of weather conditions on the preference in horses for wearing blankets

    | Contributor(s):: Mejdell, Cecilie M., Jørgensen, Grete H. M., Buvik, Turid, Torp, Torfinn, Bøe, Knut E.

    The use of blankets in horses is widespread in Northern Europe. However, horses are very adaptable to low temperatures and the practice is questioned because blankets may hamper heat dissipation at high temperatures and also disturb free movement. The aim of the current study was to gain...

  6. Influence of space availability and weather conditions on shelter use by beef cattle during winter

    | Contributor(s):: Fogsgaard, Katrine K., Christensen, Janne W.

    The objective of this experiment was to evaluate shelter use by beef cattle in relation to space allowance per individual and weather conditions. Nine groups of Angus cattle (n = 35 in total, 3-6/group) were kept on paddocks with a squared shelter (5 x 10 m) with an open long side. In a 3 x 3...

  7. The Correlation Between Snakebites And Meteorological Variations

    | Contributor(s):: Chang Na

    Background: In the United States, approximately 45,000 snakebites occur annually and affect many people including veterinarians and farmers.1 Snakebites can cause significant pain and morbidity such as severe bleeding and skin necrosis. Better predictive information on snakebite risk could help...

    | Contributor(s):: Daniel D. Olson, John A. Bissonette, Patricia C. Cramer, Patrick J. Jackson, Kevin D. Bunnell, Daniel C. Coster

    Understanding how deer move in relationship to roads is critical, because deer are in vehicle collisions, and collisions cause vehicle damage, as well as human injuries and fatalities. In temperate climates, mule deer Odocoileus hemionus have distinct movement patterns that affect their spatial...
