Sexual activities were observed continuously for h in Holstein dairy cows during moderate climate. Pedometer measurements of motor activity were correlated with total activities initiated, total activities received, mounts received, and time in estrus. Twelve of 14 individual sexual activities also were correlated on a within-cow basis with pedometer-measured increases in motor activity; disoriented mounts and licking front were not correlated to pedometer increases.
It's a scary world when milking cows constitutes sexual abuse. But did you know that milking cows constitutes sexual abuse? Well, I have taken this to heart, but must confess something.
Continuous observations of Holstein dairy cows during natural and prostaglandin-induced estrus were conducted to determine effects of cold and hot weather on the degree and pattern of sexual activities, circadian profile of activities, and location of activities. Mounts with pelvic thrusts and mounts plus 12 other estrous-related activities for 73 cows were monitored for 96 h in cold weather and h in hot weather. Eleven cows in hot weather with more than one mount were in estrus longer with less intensity of mounting than 16 cows in cold weather; climate did not affect mounts received or total activities initiated per cow.
