Evaluation of a collar monitoring activity and rumination for detecting estrus and health issues in an organic dairy farm
Early detection of estrus and health issues in dairy cattle are crucial for enhancing animal welfare and boosting profitability. Smart technologies have been recommended for monitoring heat and health minimizing labor requirements (Paudyal et al. 2018; Schweinzer et al. 2019). This study aimed to assess the suitability of the SCR HeatTime®HR system to detect estrus and health issues in dairy cows. The study was conducted on an organic dairy farm in North Italy, housing approximately 85...
Advances in semen cryopreservation, alongside the implementation of new laboratory techniques to better protect sperm cells viability, have allowed increased quality and fertility of frozen semen in mammals. However, this process can impair the acrosomal integrity, viability, and motility of spermatozoa to some degree. Deleterious effects of cryopreservation are largely due to shock temperature during the freezing process that causes osmotic and oxidative stress. The aim of the study was to a...
Whilst there are many tools for the assessment of welfare in livestock, there is none for camels. This study aimed therefore to pilot a method for assessing the welfare status of camels using animal-, resource- and management-based indicators at a camel market in Qatar. Adapting the AWIN protocol, data related to housing, feeding, health, and behaviour were collected at three levels: caretaker, herd, and animal. The Caretaker level was an interview exploring the caretaker’s background, expe...
Hybrid steel and concrete seismic-resistant systems made by steel frames with reinforced concrete infill walls (SRCWs) have potential advantages over structural solutions made only by steel or reinforced concrete (RC). In fact, the high initial stiffness of concrete is useful to minimize the damage of non-structural elements under frequent (low to moderate) earth-quakes while the ductility and dissipative capacity of the steel allow good performances under rare (high-intensity) events. Euroco...
Lignan phytocomplexes extracted from legumes act as anti-inflammatory agents in a model of adipocyte metaflammation: antioxidant properties and nutriepigenomic effects
Background: Metaflammation, a state of metabolically driven inflammation also referred to as ‘low-grade’ inflammation, is a key contributor to the development of obesity complications such as type 2 diabetes and cardiovascular diseases. Among numerous phytochemicals, lignans are secondary metabolites whose biological properties have not been properly characterized yet. This study aims to investigate the effect on metaflammation of natural mix of lignans isolated from legumes and their synthet...
