The impact of handling conditions and new environments on the stress of cattle

This project aimed to assess time points in the supply chain, from feedlots to processing, to assess the relative levels of stress at these time points and the impact of cattle temperament on stress. Qualitative behavioural assessment was also investigated as an alternative method of assessing welfare. The impact of stress and temperament on cattle production and the potential for prediction of cattle performance was assessed and quantified.
