Project description:
In the proposed scientific project we will realize the analysis of relation of the locomotion and rumination traits to detection of estrus in the dairy cattle, health, reproduction, nutrition and feeding management. In addressing the research project we establish the criteria for evaluate the mechanics of movement on the basis of which we analyze the performances of the Slovak Warm-bloods horses. We set individual load levels in training from the results of the movement evaluation and analysis of metabolic profile. From a comprehensive evaluation of the factors affecting the performance of horses we set the selection criteria for choosing for sports tests and for breeding.
