There has been an increasing interest in the topic of farm animal behaviour. This is partly an academic interest on the part of behavioural and animal scientists but also stems from the more applied aspects of the subject as it relates to animal welfare. It is now also better appreciated that behaviour and welfare of animals have an impact on health and production. This is a review of cattle behaviour and how this can contribute to improve the care, management and well-being of cattle. Examples are drawn from around the world, and while there is some emphasis on dairy cattle, mention is made of beef, dual-purpose or draught cattle where appropriate. All of the key topics such as social, reproductive and feeding behaviour are covered with reviews of the research literature. The book is suitable for advanced students and research workers in animal, diary and veterinary sciences, as well as applied ethology.
