AEC12/30 Pharmacologically induced stress alters judgement bias but not attention bias in sheep
This data collection contains behavioural and cortisol data for 28 Merino ewes. The study aimed to determine the impact of chronic stress on the emotional states of sheep, assessed through judgement bias and attention bias tests. Stress was induced pharmacologically by administering Synacthen. Judgement bias was assessed during acute (one injection... more), chronic (21 daily injections) and acute-on-chronic (2 min isolation after 28 daily injections) stress. Attention bias was assessed during chronic stress only (22 daily injections). Cortisol responses were assessed on days 1 and 29 to confirm the effects of the Synacthen. less

SIP 36-1: Resilience in livestock
This project aims to develop methods for identifying more resilient animals in our livestock productions systems. A key part of the project is development and validation of new measures which can assess the emotional components of animal well-being. Using these methods we will be able to better understand how farming practices impact animal well-be... moreing and be able to improve management practices to enhance animal welfare and productivity. less
