Animal welfare problems in beef cattle production - comparison of different housing systems



Animal welfare problems in beef cattle production - comparison of different housing systems



Auf dem Weg zu einer tiergerechten Haltung, Wissenschaftliche Tagung 23-25 September 2004 an der Universitat fur Bodenkultur Wien, Vienna, Austria: 42-45



Results are given from studies on beef cattle in various housing systems: rubber-covered, slatted floors in individual cubicles (5 herds, 43 cattle); concrete slatted floors (7 herds, 49 cattle); and deep litter in 2-place cubicles (6 herds, 48 cattle). Lying behaviour, effects on skin and soiling of coat, and foot lesions were studied. The cattle were slaughtered at 12-15 months of age, at a weight of 520 kg. Soiling of coats was low and did not differ between housing systems.
