Cow Signals Farming Note

In your herd, are there a high proportion of cows with rubbed necks or briskets? Are cows tail twitching despite there being no flies?

Cow signals and behaviour can be very indicative of the suitability of a set-up and system, therefore taking the time to observe your herd can often alert you to pressure points which may be affecting herd health and productivity.

This Farming Note covers:

  • Herd indicators
  • Individual cow behaviour
  • Physical indicators

Issued February 2009.
