In conclusion, different forms of environmental enrichment influence on the improvement of abnormal behavior of dairy goats in intensive housing.

Previously, we observed that animals had the habit of scrubbing their backs on the stall walls as an attempt to clean their hair. According to Oliveira et al.

Self-cleaning behaviors, which are commonly observed in animals in their natural habitat are highly frequent and aim at preventing and eliminating ectoparasites. However, this is changing due to increase in national and international consumption of products coming from this activity.

Caprinicultura, making animals more productive by fulfilling their behavioral needs. April 19, ; Accepted: Doze animais foram divididos em dois grupos iguais e designados a um dos seguintes tratamentos: Small Ruminant Research71 1 Each animal was observed during minute period, resulting in 6 observations per hour, 12 observations per day, and observations per animal during the experimental period.

Trained personnel recorded the behavior of each animal.

According to Malechek and Leinweber as well as Malechek and Provenzagoats prefer wide and high located leaves even when good quality pasture is available, which justifies their bipedal behavior. Animals in feedlot are restricted to express behaviors compatible with those that the environment allows cprinocultura to perform, consequently, they fail to perform behaviors characteristic of the species and begin to develop abnormal behavior, such as stereotypies.

The following 2 pages uses this file: Cinco objetos foram utilizados para enriquecer as baias: The animal is showing repetitive behaviors without a useful purpose, such as biting, licking, or repetitive movements.

The animals were already acclimated to the stalls and their stall roommates, and there was no redistribution or selection of animals, avoiding new territorial disputes by the dominant goats and possible stress source. During the pre-experimental period, the activities performed by the animals were recorded for one hour.

Revista Mundial de Zootecnia47 Subordinated animals suffer from stress due to aggressions and decrease their daily feed intake and performance. If the file has been modified from its original state, some details such as the timestamp may not fully reflect those of the original file.

All people responsible for recording animal behaviors were trained in order to increase the observations accuracy. Leiteirs composition and In vitro digestibility of forage consumed by goats on lightly and heavily stocked ranges.

In addition, methodological and technological advances are contributing to consolidate the activity Resende et al. Revista Brasileira de Zootecnia43 6 Goat caprinoculttura was a marginal or subsistence activity, characterized by low productivity.

Goat behaviors were observed for two hours during 10 days from In conclusion, animals on enriched environment show more different behaviors than animals in capfinocultura environment and showed greater preference for some object over others.

Environmental enrichment consists in introducing objects that stimulate the animals, reducing the monotony of feedlot to which they are commonly housed during the productive process. The market has become more demanding about the quality of the products from this sector.

Animals constantly assume this position in feed-lots systems and the trunk inside the stall leiteeira at promoting in feed-lot animal an approximation to natural environments. For goats, it is also important to provide vertical structures that serve as capriocultura objects, since these animals usually go to elevated places to feed and hide from predators Ribeiro et al.

Morais, Balbinotti, and Schmidt point out the necessity to regroup animals according to their physiological and production needs, in order to reduce aggressions among young and old animals that are generally subordinated caprinocultira dominant ones, respectively.
