Abstract. The animal welfare becomes the most importent branch of present zootechnic science. However objective results of welfare experiments are offen disturbed by invasive, stressing procedures i.e.: blood sampling, and affected measurement accuracy. To reduce this problem, a number of non-invasive or minimally invasive methods and devices have been proposed (Stewart et. al. 2005). Infrared thermography (IRT) allowing measurement of the heat emission from the surface of objects, is one of them. Heat emission, reflected in the body temperature of animals, is related to health and several physiological processes (McCafferty et al. 2011; Montanholi et al. 2008). Therefore, it seems interesting to presentation some applications of thermography in animal science.
