Extract

In Portugal there is an increasing interest in animal welfare studies directed mainly to the improvement of the housing systems. It is recognised that housing is an important factor that affect the behaviour, the production and the health of dairy cattle (Bowell et al., 2003). However, in Portugal few data on the welfare of dairy cattle are available. Therefore this study aimed to determine some housing, health and other welfare indicators in dairy farms in Northwest of Portugal.
