Body Condition Score

Body Condition Scoring (BCS) is a simple and effective farm management tool. It is a measure of body fat/energy reserves, that can be used to aid decisions or troubleshoot issues as they arise. The fine tuning of nutrition throughout the lactation and dry period improves the overall nutritional status of the herd, leading to improved health, milk production and reproduction. These are all factors that will impact on farm profitability.

Along with this Note is a guidance sheet on ‘How to Body Condition Score’ and a BCS Record Sheet.
