Abstract

Biomedical facilities across the nation and worldwide aim to develop cost-effective methods for the reproductive management of macaque breeding groups, typically by housing macaques in large, multi-male multi-female social groups that provide monkey subjects for research as well as appropriate...

Abstract

Social housing of rhesus macaques (Macaca mulatta) is considered to be the cornerstone of behavioral management programs in biomedical facilities. However, it also involves the risk of socially inflicted trauma. The ability to avoid such trauma would contribute to the animals' well-being and...

Abstract

The behavioural interactions of sows housed in groups are described in a series of studies. The knowledge of the factors that affect group behaviour is emphasized in order to successfully house sows in groups without negatively affecting health, fertility and welfare.

Abstract

The aim of this study was a comparison of the behaviour and stress burden of horses in a tie stalls, stabling in individual boxes and keeping horses in small groups in a group box, each with daily paddock movement (approx. 7 h). The study was carried out with eight healthy warmblood horses at the...

Abstract

Unlike several other farm animal species, the broiler chicken remains unprotected by species-specific legislation. The densities at which broilers should be kept is a highly contentious issue - some studies have demonstrated increased welfare problems at higher densities, whilst a few others have,...

Abstract

We investigated the response of commercially farmed broiler (meat) chickens to their social environment at five stocking densities, using spatial distribution and behaviour. We used a computer model in which a 'social aversion/attraction' parameter was set at different values to give simulations in ...

Abstract

The behavioural effects of stocking density and mixing individuals from 2 different flocks were studied in 80 prepubertal lambs of about 20 kg body weight kept at either low (1 lamb/m) or high (3.3 lambs/m) stocking densities, similar to conditions experienced during transport. At both densities,...
