Abstract

Social behavior is learned early in life; it enables calves to adapt to later challenges, and rearing with the dam or with peers improves calf welfare compared to individual rearing. When calves are dam-reared, breaking the maternal-filial bond is stressful, but partial separation prior to final...

In order to improve animal welfare it is recommended that dairy farmers move calving cows from the herd to individual pens when calving is imminent.

Abstract

Dairy cows in early lactation are often housed in a large group, where they may have to compete for access to feed and space. However, a cow's ability to compete may be impaired due to production disease, and housing in a small group with minimal competition may be beneficial for cow welfare. The...
