Raussi, S.; Boissy, A.; Delval, E.; Andanson, S. and Veissier, I. (2003) Do changes of pen and penmate affect the behaviour of heifers? Paper at: 37th International congress of the ISAE, Abano Terme, Italy, June, 24-28 2003.
We wanted to investigate if relocation affects behaviour of dairy heifers. In the study 32 Holstein heifers were housed in pairs until they were 13 months old. 16 heifers stayed in the same pen with the same penmate (control). The pen and penmates of 16 heifers were changed 16 times between 11 and 13 months of age.
