Body Condition Scoring

Body Condition is one indicator of your operation's success. Regular evaluation of your cow’s body condition can help to identify bottlenecks and opportunities related to your herd's milk production and reproductive performance. The 5-point scoring system was developed at Virginia Polytechnic Institute & State University. This system allows individual cows to be evaluated using consistent, objective standards.

Body Condition Scoring can help in evaluating, predicting or troubleshooting the following areas:

  • Herd Health & Management
  • Nutritional Opportunities
  • Reproductive Problems
  • Transition Cow Performance
  • Heifer Development Programs
