Salt to ruminants and horses
Salt (NaCl) is an essential element in many plants and in the diets of humans and animals. Salt is even a preservative, protecting against spoilage and coincidentally maintaining life. In most places
O CONSUMO DE SAL EM RUMINANTES: ASPECTOS FISIOLÓGICOS E COMPORTAMENTAIS MEDIANTE A PERSPECTIVA DE PRODUÇÃO ANIMAL
TLDR
This mini-review approached the ethological aspects of the natriophilic behavior in ruminants and a hypothesis and a short physiological discussion regarding interrelationship between salt ingestion and its putative implication with the animal production.
Invited review: Environmental enrichment of dairy cows and calves in indoor housing.
TLDR
Recent findings on the effect of social, occupational, physical, sensory, and nutritional enrichment on dairy cows and calves are reviewed, and the appropriateness and practicality of implementing different enrichment practices on commercial dairy farms are assessed.
Short communication: Preference for flavored concentrate premixes by dairy cows.
TLDR
In conclusion, relative to the control, concentrate intake was not affected by flavor, but dairy cows may prefer vanilla or fenugreek flavors when offered a novel choice.

SALT TASTE THRESHOLDS OF NORMAL AND ADRENALECTOMIZED RATS1
TLDR
With a slightly modified self-selection technic a special study has been made of salt taste thresholds of normal as well as of adrenalectomized rats, indicating that adrenalectomy also lowered the taste threshold for salt.
The metabolic effects of sodium depletion in calves on salt appetite assessed by operant methods.
TLDR
The metabolic changes which develop in parallel with the severity of the sodium deficit appear to be able to evoke behavioural changes with increase in salt appetite directed towards restoration of sodium balance.
Sodium deprivation alters neural responses to gustatory stimuli
TLDR
The effects of sodium deprivation for 10 d, a period sufficient to induce sodium appetite, on gustatory nerve discharges in rats were determined and a possible relationship between changes in Sodium chloride responsivity and changes in sodium intake was discussed.
The effect on salt appetite and the renin—aldosterone system on replacing the depleted ions to sodium‐deficient cattle
TLDR
Increased sodium appetite, characteristic of sodium depletion, was assessed by operant behaviour where scoring of panel pressing for NaHCO3 rewards showed change in sodium appetite.
Threshold Values for Taste in Monozygotic Twin Calves
TLDR
Using this type of preference test, threshold values for rejection and acceptance of a variety of sapid substances have been established for a number of different species.
Saline Preference Curve for Mice: Lack of Relationship to Pigmentation
TLDR
The recurrent but apparently little-known observation that darkly pigmented animals have greater taste sensitivity than their lightly pigmented conspecifics has led to the experiment described here.
