Mobility Scoring

Regular mobility scoring allows realistic assessments of herd-level lameness to be made and provides the basis for lameness eradication. Recent studies at Nottingham Vet School have demonstrated that approximately 25% of UK dairy cattle are lame on any single day of assessment. This represents a significant welfare problem and massive potential to increase profits.

This Farming Note looks at:

  • Why you would mobility score
  • The financial gains
  • Cow signal comparisons between lame and healthy animals
  • The practicalities of mobility scoring
