Pro-social behaviour in cattle?

Senast ändrad: 26 oktober 2023

The aim of the study is to investigate pro-social behaviour in cattle (i.e. if cattle help each other). The student will be involved in developing the task to be investigated, and other design from e.g. studies of pigs will be used as the basis. The study will be carried out on a dairy farm indoors, and the student will also be involved in the practicality of constructing the task i.e. making the apparatus.


Qualifications: Master student with a background in ethology, animal science, veterinary science or similar fields. Knowledge of ethology and design of ethological experiments (theory is sufficient) is a prerequisite.
