Relevance, Impartiality, Welfare and Consent: Principles of an Animal-Centered Research Ethics

It is argued that the proposed principles should complement the 3Rs within an integrated ethical framework that recognizes animals' autonomy, interests and role, for a more nuanced ethical approach and for supporting the best possible research for the benefit animal partakers and wider society.

The Potential Benefits of N2 Gas Flushing Technology for Various Dairy Products: A Sustainable Approach That Proved to Be Multiadvantageous for Preserving the Quality and Safety of Raw Milk During Its Storage

Worldwide, food production systems are confronted with multifaceted challenges. In the context of global climate change, the necessity to feed an expanding population while addressing food insecurity



How Can Cattle Be Toilet Trained? Incorporating Reflexive Behaviours into a Behavioural Chain

Reflexive behaviours can be incorporated into voluntary toileting sequences with cattle and extend the range of species that can be toilet trained, which has the potential to mitigate climate damage and improve animal health.

Normal Developmental Milestones of Toileting

The age at which children should begin toilet training is a question that concerns many parents. Although there is no universally accepted timeline for toileting skills, researchers have suggested

Animal welfare with and without consciousness

It is argued that both the study of consciousness itself and the science of animal welfare benefit from facing up to difficulties rather than glossing over them and allowing animal welfare science to move forward without having solved the hardest biological problem of all.

Ammonia emission from dairy cow buildings: a review of measurement techniques, influencing factors and possibilities for reduction

An analytical inventory of ammonia emission data of dairy housing systems is made and possibilities for reduction are assessed, based upon the analysis of processes and factors involved in the production and volatilization of ammonia.

Greenhouse gases and ammonia emissions from organic mixed crop-dairy systems: a critical review of mitigation options

Dairy production systems represent a significant source of air pollutants such as greenhouse gases (GHG), that increase global warming, and ammonia (NH3), that leads to eutrophication and
