Hänninen, L.; Hepola, H.; Raussi, S.; Sariola, J.; Khalili, H. and Saloniemi, H. (2006) The effect of milk feeding method on calves' behavioural sleep. In: Proceedings, International Society for Applied Ethology, p. 4.
Our aim was to study how calves' sleep could be affected by the milk feeding and housing methods.
We concluded that possibility to suck milk increased the amount of calves' behavioural quiet sleep and sleepiness after feeding, possibly due to suck-induced hormonal effects.
