'Libido' in the larger farm animals: a review



'Libido' in the larger farm animals: a review



Applied Animal Ethology 7(3): 203-238



The term 'libido', first used by Freud to refer to the force by which the sexual instinct is represented in the mind, has become more and more used to refer to some aspects of sexual behaviour in large domestic animals. From being a wide, rather imprecise term, it has come to be defined in a variety of ways in each species, and this can lead to ambiguity and imprecision in communication. Its use in assessing attributes of the male sexual behaviour of sheep, cattle, pigs and horses is reviewed.
