Sheep are one of the most studied farm species in terms of their ability to process information from faces, but little is known about their face-based emotion recognition abilities. We investigated a) whether sheep could use images of sheep faces taken in situation of varying valence as cues in a simultaneous discrimination task and b) whether the...
Faces are an essential source of information for social species. Sheep are one of the most studied farm species in terms of their ability to process information from faces, but little is known about their face-based emotion recognition abilities. We investigated whether sheep could use images of faces displaying different emotional states as cues i...
Faces of conspecifics convey information about identity, but also gaze, and attentional or emotional state. As a cognitive process, face-based emotion recognition can be subject to judgment bias. In this study we investigated whether dairy goats (n = 32) would show different responses to 2-D images of faces of familiar conspecifics displaying posit...

Identity is displayed through the face, but facial expressions also convey gaze, and attentional or emotional state. In this study we investigated whether dairy goats (n=32) would show different responses to 2-D images of faces of familiar conspecifics displayin...
