Nogues, Emeline; Ede, Thomas; Woodroffe, Raphaela E.; Weary, Daniel M.; von Keyserlingk, Marina A.G., 2023, "Can a social partner alleviate conditioned place aversion caused by isolation and pain in dairy calves?",, Borealis, V1, UNF:6:4ZgtAZULklKcfd/Lk+ZCSA== [fileUNF]
Social buffering occurs when the presence of a partner mitigates the stress response of an individual. In two experiments, we assessed the effects of social buffering in dairy calves, with and without a known conspecific, when either subjected to isolation from the larger group (...

Koralesky, Katherine; Sirovica, Lara; Hendricks, Jillian; Mills, Katelyn; von Keyserlingk, Marina; Weary, Daniel, 2022, "Social Acceptance of Genetic Engineering Technology",, Borealis, V4
Genetic engineering of animals has been proposed to address societal problems, but public acceptance of the use of this technology is unclear. Previous work has shown that the source of information proposing the technology (e.g. companies, universities), the term used to describe...

Weary, Daniel; Gaworski, Marek; McLellan, Kathryn; von Keyserlingk, Marina, 2023, "Replication Data for: Effect of neck-rail placement on free-stall use and the force exerted on the rail by naïve dairy heifers",, Borealis, V1, UNF:6:aVBQPRRPBK78sQ5wUmzADw== [fileUNF]
How cattle respond when introduced to new housing systems is understudied. Indoor housed dairy heifers are often kept on open packs early in life and then later transition to free-stall housing. The neck-rail in free stalls acts as a physical and visual barrier intended to preven...

Knowlton, Katharine; von Keyserlingk, Marina, 2023, "Replication Data for: To treat or not to treat: Public attitudes on the therapeutic use of antibiotics in the dairy industry",, Borealis, V1, UNF:6:S5Zp+u3uZJQtOxK2TTeX6w== [fileUNF]
This paper describes the views of 779 U.S. residents on questions related to therapeutic antibiotic use in dairy cattle. A mixed method online survey was conducted with quantitative (demographic, either/or) and qualitative (open-ended) questions. Respondents were offered one of t...

Kuo, Christine; von Keyserlingk, Marina, 2023, "Replication Data for: Livestock hauler and dairy farmer perspectives about cull dairy cattle transport and cattle transport regulations in British Columbia, Canada",, Borealis, V1
Dairy cows are usually culled and transported from the farm when they no longer meet the farm’s standards for production or are not needed for milk production. Some cows are transported while in poor condition and may deteriorate further during transport. In February 2020, Canadi...

Suchon, Malina; Ede, Thomas; Vandresen, Bianca; von Keyserlingk, Marina A. G., 2023, "Social housing improves dairy calves’ performance in a competition test",, Borealis, V1, UNF:6:Cskdb70ipNygJODsk1n0xQ== [fileUNF]
This study aimed to investigate the impact of early-life social housing on dairy calves' competitive skills. Calves were housed either individually (n=9) or in pairs (n=9). After 14 d of housing treatment, calves underwent a competition test for 5 d against a competitor. Pair hou...

Ventura, Beth; Weary, Daniel; von Keyserlingk, Marina, 2023, "Replication data for: How should the public contribute to discussions on cattle welfare? Perspectives of veterinarians and animal scientists",, Borealis, V1
Veterinarians and animal scientists can provide leadership on issues relevant to farm animal welfare, but perceptions of these stakeholders regarding societal expectations for welfare are underexplored. This study involved five focus groups of veterinarians and animal scientists...

Kuo, Christine; Koralesky, Katherine E.; von Keyserlingk, Marina A.G.; Weary, Daniel M., 2023, "Gene editing in animals: What does the public want to know?",, Borealis, V2, UNF:6:eATjl85l1MH7BVq+U9XCuQ== [fileUNF]
We aimed to describe the questions people pose about gene editing (GE) in animals as a novel approach to understanding public knowledge of GE. We also compared our participants’ questions with those listed on Frequently Asked Question (FAQ) webpages hosted by GE organizations. Pa...

Koralesky, Katherine E.; von Keyserlingk, Marina A.G.; Weary, Daniel M., 2023, "Measuring online survey participant engagement through qualitative response analysis",, Borealis, V1
Quantitative attention checks are commonly used in online surveys including those investigating public opinions about genetic engineering (GE) in plants and animals. Measuring participant engagement via open-ended qualitative response analysis in GE surveys, however, is underexpl...

Heinsius, Jennifer; Lomb, Julia; Lee, Joseph; von Keyserlingk, Nina; Weary, Dan, 2023, "Training dairy heifers with positive reinforcement: effects on anticipatory behavior.",, Borealis, V1, UNF:6:zWrAnhzfCaTylewv+7cz+w== [fileUNF]
Dairy cattle are often restrained for veterinary procedures, but restraint can cause fear responses that can make the procedure challenging for both the animal and the human handler. Positive reinforcement training (PRT) is used in other species to reduce fear responses and there...
