The main research questions is: Can cattle learn to associate a previously unknown odour with a pleasant experience?
Qualifications: Master/kandidat student with a background in animal science, veterinary science or similar fields. Knowledge of ethology and design of ethological experiments (theory is sufficient) is prerequisites.
Practical information: Experiments will be conducted indoor on a private farm. Long experimental days with overnight stays either near or on the farm can be expected. Previous experience with handling large animals is an advantage and a driver’s license might be necessary. This project can be conducted alongside another project scheduled for spring 2022 approx., in the area around Skara, Västra Götalands län, or in Skåne.
