Summary

Under natural conditions, most parturient cows seek visual cover or seclude themselves from the herd when calving becomes imminent. Studies on calving site selection of dairy cows housed indoors show that predominantly older and dominant cows calve in secluded areas offering visual cover. This study aimed to investigate if cows distance themselves further from herd members under spacious outdoor conditions and if artificial hides on a pasture motivate cows to seek visual isolation from the herd.
