Probst, Johanna K.; Leiber, Florian; Hillmann, Edna; Kreuzer, Michael and Spengler Neff, Anet (2011) Reduction of slaughterhouse stress in beef cattle by facilitating animal tameness. Poster at: Humane Slaughter Association Centenary International Symposium: Recent Advances in the Welfare of Livestock at Slaughter, Portsmouth Historic Dockyard, UK , 30th June and 1st July 2011.
The relationship between animals and humans is important for animal husbandry and welfare. Loosehousing and grazing systems with low management input often result in frail relationships between humans and animals. This study investigated whether a positive handling, applied during the first days of the animals’ life, had a calming and stress reducing effect on suckler beef calves at slaughter.
