Abstract

Horses can sleep while standing; however, recumbency is required for rapid eye movement (REM) sleep and therefore essential. Previous research indicated a minimal duration of recumbency of 30 min per 24 h to perform a minimal duration of REM sleep. For group-housed horses, suitable lying area...

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

Entire male pigs display more aggressive and sexual behaviour. This might cause a condition of chronic stress and impair their welfare. In order to assess chronic stress in entire and castrated male pigs, as well as effects of providing grass silage as occupational and feed material on behaviour...

Abstract

The aim of this study was to test the effects of mother rearing on behavioural and physiological stress reactions of calves in challenging situations. Thus, we compared mother-reared and artificially reared calves that were kept in the same group but with varying contact with adults. Mother-reared...

Abstract

As a goat's separation from or reintegration into its group is likely to have an adverse effect on the welfare of both the separated goat and the remaining goats in the group, management procedures need to be carried out in a way that minimises their negative impact. In the present study, we tested ...

Abstract

The introduction of an individual goat into an established group is likely to result in intense agonistic interactions, which may adversely affect the welfare of both the introduced goat and the resident goats. To assess this situation, we introduced eight horned and eight hornless goats one at a...

Abstract

Analogous to the way in which repeated episodes of stress can lead to a negative emotional state, it is possible that repeated positive emotions could lead to a positive emotional state. Positive emotions can be induced by providing enrichment or by successfully coping with cognitive challenges....

Abstract

At weaning piglets are confronted with a variety of challenges. In this study, we tested the effect of two rearing conditions on the behavioural responses of piglets towards social and non-social challenges at the time of weaning. A total of 81 piglets were reared either in an individual farrowing...

Abstract

When introduced into a new herd, goats are confronted with unfamiliar animals. Their behavioural and physiological reactions during this confrontation are likely to differ depending on the presence or absence of familiar conspecifics (peers). To assess these reactions, we confronted 12 goats both...

Abstract

Sows were kept in a group before farrowing and were allowed to farrow and to nurse their piglets either in individual farrowing systems (IFS) (69 animals) or in group farrowing system (GFS) (29 animals). Under both systems a nursing period lasted 35 days. GFS-piglets grew faster before and after...
