Abstract

Maternal and social isolation have been shown to have detrimental effects on behaviour that persist into adulthood in a range of species. In the UK, dairy calves are separated from their dam almost immediately, and 60% are individually reared during their first weeks of life. The cost of rearing...

Abstract

Usually, calves are separated from the mother after birth and kept in individual boxes for the first 10 to 14 days. For several years, however, there are numerous scientific test results that suggest that calf development is positively influenced if they are kept very early in pairs or in small...

Abstract

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. However, the practicality of moving cows has proven a challenge and may lead to disturbance of the cows rather than easing the process of calving. One ...

Abstract

In 2018 two ethological observations of sheep and cows were conducted in two localities in the Praděd surroundings (Ovčárna - 1330 m a.s.l.; Praděd - 1430 m a.s.l), where the grazing of these animals was renewed after the long-term management cessation. The observed localities did not differ as for ...

Abstract

Separating calf and cow within 24 h after birth is common practice in dairy farms. Some dairy farmers, however, practice a rearing system in which the calves are nursed by their dam or by foster cows. We investigated if dairy calves reared in such a system (calves with cow-contact) differ in their...

Abstract

This article emphasizes the advantages of developing the cow-calf relationship through continuous suckling of calf to its dam. The social behaviour of calves reared by its dam is better than those artificially reared due to the bonding behaviour. However, developing the social behaviour of the calf ...
