HMH Investigating the relationship between cats and owners

The aim of the project is to develop reliable methods to study and assess the cat-owner relationship as an attempt to identify different relationship styles, based on attachment theory. Generally, an

HMH Small-scale and mobile slaughter

Farm animals are usually transported on road to the slaughterhouse, where they often spend the night before being slaughtered. Stress occurs in connection with handling, during transport and in

HMH Organic beef and other ecosystem services produced at semi-natural pasture and forest mosaics

HMH Organic beef and other ecosystem services produced at semi-natural pasture and forest mosaics

The proposed project has two overall aims; one is to analyze and assess possibilities to make small scale organic beef production economical viable by designing coherent grazing land of pastures and

HMH The effect of early tactile stimulation on the behaviour and production in piglets

HMH The effect of early tactile stimulation on the behaviour and production in piglets

Previous research in different species has shown that early handling decreases fear of humans and has a buffering effect on stress later in life. The ability of coping with stressful situations

HMH Development of a method to study the relationship between dogs and owners

There is evidence of an attachment bond between dogs and their owners in that they seem to support each other in times of distress. So far, this has been studied either from the dog's point of view

HMH Human caregiving behaviour and its effect on emotional bonding in dogs

The objective of this project is to reveal underlying factors contributing to successful relationships between dogs and their owners. The short-term bonding processes in dogs towards humans depending

HMH Physiological assessments for improved welfare of farmed fish

Several national and international investigations have reported that the welfare of fish in aquaculture in many respects is compromised. This is because in modern fish farms, tens of thousands of

HMH Impact of early gut microflora colonization on behaviour in pigs: Investigating the microbiota-gut-brain axis

In nature, pigs have a varied diet and are exposed to many different bacteria from early life. This results in a large variety in their gut microbiota. In a farm setting, pigs are fed standard diet

HMH The link between positive animal welfare early in life and enhanced immune competence in dairy cows

HMH The link between positive animal welfare early in life and enhanced immune competence in dairy cows

This project addresses how optimization of the social environment of young dairy calves on farms can be a powerful tool to enhance their abilities to cope with challenges and boost their immune

HMH Optimal light environment for laying hens

Vision is the laying hens´ most important sense that guides them in their daily activities such as finding food, recognizing fellow birds and move around safely in more complex housing systems. Birds

HMH Preparing for the challenges and opportunities of life: effects of early experience on adaptive plasticity in laying hens

Farm animals are often reared in one type of environment but housed as adults in another. When moved, a lack of skill needed to adapt rapidly to the new environment can compromise welfare. “Adaptive
