Abstract/Summary This project was designed to obtain a greater understanding of the impacts of dehorning on the welfare of Bos indicus calves and weaners aged between 3 and 10 months. A series of five experiments investigated the physiological, behavioural, liveweight and wound healing responses of calves and weaners. In addition, the project investigated whether the negative impacts of dehorning on the welfare of calves and weaners could be reduced by the use of pharmaceutical drugs, modifying the dehorning procedure or the timing of dehorning relative to weaning.
