The aim of the study was to determine the effect of two type of stress by measuring plasma concentratin of cortisol, glucose and triglycerides. All two types of handling caused a certain amount of stress, shown by an increase in blood levels of cortisol and glucose, but tying down had a greater effect on the response of the organism. In order to respect animal welfare it would be right to reduce to the necessary the time of handling.

Abstract

The aim of the study was to determine the effect of two type of stress by measuring plasma concentratin of cortisol, glucose and triglycerides. All two types of handling caused a certain amount of stress, shown by an increase in blood levels of cortisol and glucose, but tying down had a greater effect on the response of the organism. In order to respect animal welfare it would be right to reduce to the necessary the time of handling.
