Accredited Body Condition Scorers

Body Condition Scoring

It is well known that achieving body condition score (BCS) targets is important to maximise your herd’s reproductive performance. But how do you know if your cows are on track? What can you do if not? There is a saying “You can’t improve what you don’t measure” and this certainly can be applied to body condition.

The Anexa Vets team includes many Accredited Body Condition Scorers. We can assist you in monitoring cow condition on your farm. Depending on the time of year and the information you require, it may be better to do ‘mob scoring’ where at least 70 animals from each mob are scored (to get herd average and range), or ‘individual cow scoring’ where every animal in the herd is scored and recorded (particularly useful in mid- to late-lactation to help with drying off decisions). Please talk to your local vet to have a chat about which options are best for you.
