Conditioned food aversion is a powerful experimental tool to modify animal diets. We have also investigated it as a potential management tool to prevent livestock from grazing poisonous plants such as tall larkspur (Delphinium barbeyi), white locoweed (Oxytropis sericea) and ponderosa pine (Pinus ponderosa) on western US rangelands. The following principles pertain to increasing the strength and longevity of aversions: mature animals retain aversions better than young animals; novelty of the… Expand
How to Create Conditioned Taste Aversion for Grazing Ground Covers in Woody Crops with Small Ruminants.
TLDR
To minimize the risk of target plant consumption, it is essential to have sufficient palatable ground cover available and the presence of an alternative feed prevents the accidental consumption of the target plant. Expand
Generalization of conditioned food aversions in grazing sheep and its implications for food categorization
TLDR
Sheep did not generalize their aversion on the basis of sward height but rather on species: they increased their preference for tall fescue and decreased their instantaneous preference for short ryegrass after having been conditioned against tall ryEGrass. Expand
Effects of Conditioned Food Aversions on Nutritional Behavior in Humans
  • G. Scalera

TLDR
The present review evaluates the literature derived both from laboratory animals and humans to conclude that convincing evidence has been provided that CFA and CTA learning are possible in a wide range of human subjects. Expand
Food aversion learning to eliminate cattle consumption of pine needles.
TLDR
Conditioning permanent aversions may require averting cattle to all forms of pine needles likely to be encountered in a pasture, and cattle did not appear to generalize the aversion from green needles to dry needle litter. Expand
Does feeding area restriction inhibit social learning of toxic weed ingestion in cattle?
TLDR
Manipulation of the feeding environment delayed, but did not inhibit social learning of toxic weed ingestion in yearling heifers in this study. Expand
Effect of breed and lithium chloride dose on the conditioned aversion to olive tree leaves (Olea europaea L.) of sheep
TLDR
Aversion was fully created with a single dose in all ewes, however, 20% of animals needed a reinforcement dose to strengthen the aversion (especially in Manchega eWes and AV1 dose). Expand

Predator-Resembling Aversive Conditioning for Managing Habituated Wildlife
TLDR
It is demonstrated that it is possible to temporarily modify aspects of the behavior of moderately habituated elk using aversive conditioning, suggests a method for reducing habituation in the first place, and provides a solution for Banff and other jurisdictions to manage hyperabundant and habituated urban wildlife. Expand
¿Cómo evitar el consumo de plantas tóxicas en rumiantes?, la aversión condicionada y el manejo de grupos como herramientas
TLDR
This paper approaches the associative learning of ruminant diets individually and group and group in order to apply it to consumption of toxic plants and requires a review of the use of lithium chloride associated with toxic foods to avoid consumption. Expand
Conditioned aversion to olive tree leaves (Olea europaea L.) in goats and sheep
TLDR
The LiCl conditioned aversion to olive tree leaves proved to be an efficient short-term method in sheep and goats under the experimental conditions and may be of special interest for implementing selective grazing and for avoiding the use of herbicides in organic cultures. Expand

Adverse influence of social facilitation and learning context in training cattle to avoid eating larkspur.
TLDR
Reinforced aversion was overcome by social facilitation in an unfamiliar field-grazing environment and the aversion was renewed when the heifers were returned to the pen- and group-feeding situation where the aversionwas created. Expand
Conditioned taste aversions: how sick must a ruminant get before it learns about toxicity in foods?
TLDR
It is concluded that the food-avoidance learning abilities of ruminants are better developed than was previously assumed, and that CTA behaviour could be an important means by which large herbivores reduce the risk of being poisoned while foraging. Expand
Conditioned Taste Aversion: Potential for Reducing Cattle Loss to Larkspur
TLDR
The objective of the study was to determine whether or not cattle could be conditioned to avoid eating larkspur, and a rapid breakdown of the aversions was observed and the averted heifers continued consuming larkpur after being separated from non-averted heIFers. Expand
Acquired aversions as the basis for varied diets of ruminants foraging on rangelands.
  • F. Provenza
  • Biology, Medicine
  • Journal of animal science
  • 1996
TLDR
The subtle ways in which aversions diminish preference and cause animals to eat a variety of foods are discussed, one which encompasses the avoidance of toxins and the acquisition of nutrients. Expand
How food preferences are learned: laboratory animal models.
  • A. Sclafani
  • Biology, Medicine
  • The Proceedings of the Nutrition Society
  • 1995
TLDR
A variety of models have been developed using laboratory rats to reveal the intricacies of food-preference learning and it is now well documented that strong food preferences can also be learned as animals experience the positive nutritive effects of foods. Expand
Conditioned Flavor Aversion: A Mechanism for Goats to Avoid Condensed Tannins in Blackbrush
TLDR
Goats learned to avoid condensed tannins from blackbrush current season's growth by associating the flavor of foods containing CTs with aversive postingestive consequences, which suggest several areas of inquiry related to the interaction between CTs and herbivores. Expand
Creating aversions to locoweed in naive and familiar cattle.
TLDR
Reinforcement of aversions following field grazing of locoweed prevented cattle that were familiar with locoweeds from grazing it, and the strength and longevity of aversion between steers that was familiar with Locoweed and naive steers was compared. Expand
Cattle avoidance of leafy spurge: A case of conditioned aversion
TLDR
Cattle avoid leafy spurge partly or wholly because they develop a conditioned aversion after first ingesting some threshold amount of it, and introducing spurge into cattle after their intake of novel feed reduced aversions to a novel feed paired with spurge introductions. Expand
Amount of experience and prior illness affect the acquisition and persistence of conditioned food aversions in lambs
TLDR
Lambs are not likely to abstain from a food they were trained to avoid if they have more than 7 days experience with the food, and should be fed small amounts of highly nutritious novel foods during the first 7 days to avoid gastro-intestinal distress and more persistent aversions. Expand

  • Psychology, Medicine
  • Annals of the New York Academy of Sciences

TLDR
This article describes how conditioned food aversions are acquired by humans and provides information regarding the likelihood that humans' taste aversions will be formed to particular foods, information that may be helpful, for example, in preventing anorexia caused by cancer chemotherapy. Expand
