    Abstract : In allergic disorders, the eosinophilic granulocytes migrate to affected tissues and release granule proteins with cytotoxic, immunoregulatory, and remodeling-promoting properties. Given that degranulation is reflected by a loss in eosinophil granule density of living cells, or by cell membrane rupture and release of intact granules, these morphological changes may represent a biomarker of the allergic disease.

    University dissertation from ; Department of Energy and Technology, Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences

    Author : Samuel Aradom Messmer; Sveriges lantbruksuniversitet.; [2013]
    Keywords : LANTBRUKSVETENSKAPER; AGRICULTURAL SCIENCES;

    Abstract : Farm animals are transported several times during their lifetime and often long distances, and most of them are to slaughter.

The main objective of the thesis work was to study the welfare of pigs, cows and bulls during transport from farm to abattoir. READ MORE

  5. 15. Cattle grazing on semi-natural pastures : animal behaviour and nutrition, vegetation characteristics and environmental aspects

    University dissertation from ; Department of Animal Nutrition and Management, Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences

    Author : Maja Elisabeth Pelve; Sveriges lantbruksuniversitet.; [2010]
    Keywords : LANTBRUKSVETENSKAPER; AGRICULTURAL SCIENCES;

    Abstract : The knowledge of the grazing behaviour of cattle on Swedish semi-natural pastures and how this relates to the nutritional quality and quantity of the vegetation is low. In a situation where farming is being intensified both nationally and globally, it is important to gain more information about semi-natural pastures and how to utilise this resource properly.
