Behaviour of dairy cows in a straw yard in relation to lameness


Veterinary Record 135(11): 251-253
Behaviour of dairy cows in a straw yard in relation to lameness
Lying down and other behavioural activities of dairy cows were studied for three 24-hour periods in a straw yard. The cows spent a total of 13.6 h in the straw yard and lay down for 9.7 h. The lying down time in one observation was 10.8 h and this period was considered ideal because there was little disturbance during that observation.
