Comparative observations were carried out on the behaviour of dairy cows kept either in tying stalls (TS) or in loose housing (LH) under the same feeding regimen. The LH cows spent more time feeding, less time lying down, less time ruminating, and demonstrated also less frequent grooming behaviour than did the TS cows. A significant interaction between the type of housing and time elapsing after feed supply could be observed for the duration and frequency of a majority of behaviours studied. A higher frequency of feeding bouts in LH was connected with fights for access to the trough and interruption in feed consumption. The differences observed in feeding and rumination may contribute to a poorer feed efficiency in LH and thus be responsible for the lower milk yield in cows kept in loose housing.
