Goats can adapt to changing environmental conditions more quickly than sheep probably because of different feeding ecologies, according to a new study involving Dr Alan McElligott, an expert in animal behaviour and welfare at CityU.
Big-data research led by a CityU researcher has found that although more than 80% of cats in Australia were desexed, only a fraction have had surgery before reaching puberty, thus creating a “pregnancy gap”. It is recommended that the age of desexing is before four months.
Three projects at CityU have been granted $8.3 million in funding by the Health and Medical Research Fund under the Food and Health Bureau, spotlighting our valuable contributions to fighting Covid-19.
A research team led by a scientist at CityU has discovered that kangaroos can intentionally communicate with humans, challenging the notion that this behaviour is usually restricted to domesticated animals like dogs, horses or goats.
The Jockey Club College of Veterinary Medicine and Life Sciences has been granted $35 million in government funding to enhance the sustainability, health and production of local livestock farms and fisheries.
