Abstract:

Social facilitation defined as initiation of a particular response while observing others engaged in that behavior. Contact with the dam or other older animals within the first few weeks of life able to learn young animals to start sampling solid feeds and to eat. Social facilitation and social learning may result in higher intake of solid feed and improved body weight gains compared with individually housed calves. Many researchers reported that calves housed in group showed more eating and lying time but lesser abnormal behaviour like cross-sucking, self- licking, tongue rolling etc. Group housed calves performed more health problems mainly, diarrhea, respiratory as compared to individual housed calves. After weaning, socially housed calves performed better as compared to individually housed calves. So overall, social environment is must for overall development and welfare of calves.
