Reduction of aggression-based injuries in breeding does by improvement of management

I studied veterinary medicine at the Universities of Budapest, Hungary and Leipzig, Germany from September 2012- February 2018. During that time, I became more and more interested in ethology and behavioral research. In May 2018 I was given the opportunity to join the Division of Animal Welfare in Bern to write my doctoral thesis about different management schedules of separation of breeding does in terms of (social) stress, agonistic behavior, and injuries.
