Cow Grouping Farming Note

Cow grouping is a useful management tool, particularly in larger herds, which allows the requirements of each individual cow to be more easily met. Deciding if your herd should be split into smaller groups will involve weighing up the benefits against the extra effort involved. The most effective cow management group comes down to what will work on your farm, taking account of cow performance levels, labour availability, space, facilities etc.

This 2 part Farming Note covers:

  • Reasons for cow grouping
  • Management group options
  • Key building design considerations
  • Minimising cow stress

Issued March and April 2012.
