Capra aegagrus hircus User: The animals were evaluated for 10 days in two different treatments. During the pre-experimental period, most common behaviors of animals placed in all stalls enriched or not was observed caprinocultuura order to create an ethogram Table 1. Animals in feedlot are restricted to express behaviors compatible with those that the environment allows them to perform, consequently, they fail to perform behaviors characteristic of the species and begin to develop abnormal behavior, such as stereotypies.

You may select the license of your choice. The behavior of biting stall parts alternated with food intake was considered abnormal and recorded as stereotyped behavior, as well as licking several times the same spot or standing without moving in front of the wall in the same place for a long time.

In addition, environmental enrichment seeks to allow the expression of the natural pattern of behaviors of the species, avoiding anomalies that could harm the physical and psychic welfare of farming animals, as well as their productivity.


The behaviors were recorded using focal-animal sampling method, observing each animal during minute period. Small Ruminant Researchcaprinoculltura 1 Each stall was randomly assigned to a treatment.

Animals submitted to environmental enrichments were more active than animals not submitted to environmental enrichments.

Thus, making animals more productive by fulfilling their behavioral needs.

They observed behavioral changes in feed-lot animals with the enrichment of their leiteida because this practice makes the environment more cprinocultura and reduces the apathy in feed-lot animals. Fight and competition behaviors were lower in the stalls without enrichment 2. Simon Eugster — Simon The timestamp is only as accurate as the clock in the camera, and it may be completely wrong.


Figure 1 depicts the frequency percentage of each behavior during the day experimental period. Animals caprinicultura stall number 1 and 2 were submitted to an enriched environment, while animals on stall number 3 and 4 were not submitted to any environmental enrichment.

Acta Scientiae Veterinariae38 4 Goat behaviors were observed for two hours during 10 capeinocultura from Animals constantly assume this position in feed-lots systems and the trunk inside the stall aimed at promoting in feed-lot animal an approximation to natural environments. Results and discussion Figure 1 depicts the frequency percentage of each behavior during the day experimental period.


Introduction Goat farming was a marginal or subsistence activity, characterized by low productivity.

Animals on both treatments showed similar behaviors frequencies for food intake and self-cleaning. Data from behavioral analysis were summarized through descriptive statistics and used to build frequency charts, which aimed at facilitating the interpretation of the obtained results.

Summary [ edit ] Description Ziege Susten.

A stereotypy is a behavioral disorder characterized by continuous repetition of certain behaviors. Thus, it is reasonable to assume that animals in stalls with enrichment had greater feed intake than animals on stalls without enrichment due to the improvement of their animal welfare level. For animals on enriched environment, we also recorded the interactions with the tire, suspended PET, tree trunk, brushes, and free PET on the floor. However, this is changing due to increase in national and international consumption of products coming from this activity.

This timing was chosen because the animals had already consumed their feeding and rumination rate had already decreased. Environmental enrichment can improve animal welfare and production. Dispute for enrichment objects among dominant goats explain this result.
