Ever wondered how to test olfactory investigation in cattle?
Or if cows like the smell of coffee?
Well, we wondered the same and this resulted in a brand new study, which just came out today.
For the next 50 days the article is freely accessible so please feel free to share: https://authors.elsevier.com/a/1Vr6WcF2OSze
Highlights of the study:
- The first Habituation/Dishabituation Test adapted for and applied to cattle.
- Cows and heifers can distinguish between complex odours (coffee and orange juice) and show increased interest in coffee
- A new potential to use odours when adapting or enriching the environment in which we keep cattle?
