Data were obtained on Holstein X (Slovakian Pied X Czech Pied) cows (experimental group) compared with Slovakian Pied X Czech Pied controls. In autumn, the experimental group spent significantly more time lying (ruminating or non-ruminating) than...

Slovak Pied X Holstein-Friesian cows were observed for 24 h in each month from May to Oct. 1980 both in housing having feeding/resting cubicles with unbedded grating floors, and in the yard. Cows tended to walk unsteadily and some limped after pro...

In a farm-scale trial using 90 Ayrshire and Friesian cows it was found that Ayrshire heifers yielded 398 kg. more milk per lactation in conventional cowsheds than those in semi-open yards and Friesians 30 kg. more. However, the yield of mature cow...
