Animals, Vol. 14, Pages 1171: Use of a Calving Blind That Imitates a Natural Environment Animals doi: 10.3390/ani14081171 Authors: Hannah E. Olsen Kurt D. Vogel Kate C. Creutzinger Many indoor-housed cows isolate at calving when given the opportunity, and calving behaviors vary by blind and pen design. The objectives of this study were to determine if cows preferred calving in a visibly separated (blind) or an open area of a group maternity pen, and if there was a preference for the degree of seclusion provided by the blind (50% vs. 100% coverage). Two calving blinds were provided in a group c ..read more
