ABSTRACT Factors contributing to the development of keel bone damage are not well understood. This study aimed to identify behaviors and cage structures associated with acceleration events experienced by individual hens at their keels as the birds navigated their enriched colony cage environments. Additionally, we aimed to characterize the accelerations associated with these behaviors, as we postulated that behaviors associated with higher accelerations may be more likely to lead to keel bone da...

Abstract This study investigated the effect of pen shape and pen size on the group flight distance of extensively managed ewes, and how flight distances of individual ewes compared when recorded in group and isolated settings. Within eight groups of 25 sheep, six focal animals were randomly selected (N = 48 ewes). Over four days, groups were placed in four different sized and shaped pens and flight distances (m) of focal animals were recorded. Pens designs were small rectangle (3.3 m x 7.2 m), m...

Abstract Fish batches are often transported from aquacultures to laboratory facilities, and this fact triggers a pre-stressed condition that can cause alterations in both physiological and behavioural status of animals. The acclimation before fish trials is highly recommended to ideally ensure basal levels for the species, but there is still limited information concerning the period of time and parameters to be included for the evaluation. Facing those facts, brown trout (Salmo trutta f. fario) ...

Abstract Visual information is key to how many animals interact with their environment, and much research has investigated how animals respond to colour and brightness information in the natural world. Understanding the visibility of features in anthropogenic environments, and how animals respond to these, is also important, not least for the welfare and safety of animals and the humans they co-exist with, but has received comparatively less attention. One area where this is particularly pertine...
Abstract Systems for the production of food, or other products for human use, should be sustainable. This means that the system should be acceptable now and its expected future effects should be acceptable, in particular in relation to resource availability, consequences of functioning and morality of action. However, there are many components of sustainability. People who consider only one aspect may not advocate the best solution. If the focus is entirely on: animal welfare, preservation of ra...

Abstract The case for episodic memory in non-human animals has been intensely debated. Although a variety of paradigms have shown elements of episodic memory in non-human animals, research has focused on rodents, birds and primates, using standardized experimental designs, limiting the types of events that can be investigated. Using a novel survey methodology to address memories in everyday life, we conducted two studies asking a total of 375 dog and cat owners if their pet had ever remembered a...

Abstract The competitive edge of the National horse breeds in Norway is assumed to be strengthened by utilizing their temperament as a trait in the breeding goal. Previously, the temperament of the Norwegian horse breeds is described through five common factors, and there is a need for developing a test for temperament. In this study, 63 horses were tested at 6 different farms, through a proposed test procedure consisting of seven test moments composed of different obstacles/tasks. The performan...

Abstract The use of aversive-based training methods has been suggested to negatively affect dog-human attachment. However, the scientific evidence for this claim is relatively limited. Previous studies relied upon owner reports of training methods or on potentially confounded measures of attachment (e.g., eye gaze). The aim of the present study was to comprehensively and objectively investigate the relationship between aversive- and reward-based training methods and dog-owner attachment. Compani...

Abstract Despite the spatial and social restrictions it causes, single stall housing still prevails in sport and riding school horses, leading to the emergence of abnormal behaviours such as stereotypic or abnormal repetitive behaviours (SB/ARB). In the present study, we investigated the impact of the type (visual/tactile) and amount of social information that could be exchanged (i.e. distance between the individuals) on the expression of welfare indicators, including, but not limited to, STB. A...

Abstract Modern broiler chickens spend a great proportion of their time resting, which poses a major threat to their welfare due to the increased risk of contact dermatitis and the incidence and severity of leg problems. Provision of environmental enrichment or manipulation of existing resources in the environment may increase the activity level of broilers and simultaneously improve their welfare. The aim of this study was to investigate the effects of different types of environmental complexit...
