The objective of this dissertation was to identify different management and nutritional factors that help to im-prove weaning success of dairy calves fed higher levels of milk. The first study was focused on comparing the effects of two gradual weaning programs when calves were fed two levels of milk on feed consumption, growth, and health. In general, the two gradual weaning programs resulted in similar performance and health outcomes, while both milk level treatments resulted in similar feed intakes and performance postweaning.

Cale Matesic's PhD Defence

Creating enclosures in wildlife rehabilitation centers attributes to a large fraction of the success of a wildlife rehabilitator. Without the proper enclosure, release of an animal back into the wild can be difficult. The testing of the effectiveness of a newly built cost-efficient enclosure on the behaviour and welfare of red foxes was conducted between the months of May and August in 2017 and 2018. Five red foxes were chosen (four in 2017, and one in 2018) and their behaviours were observed over this timeframe.
