DeLaval body condition scoring BCS

Key Benefits

Improve cow health

Consistent and accurate scores act as an early warning system if a cow deviates from the ideal body condition score curve. Any deviations can be acted on sooner to help your cows be healthier and more productive.

Accurate feeding

Body condition scores are often used as a critical measure of how effective feeding is on a farm. Therefore it needs to be done accurately and at specific times in the lactation cycle. Knowing the body condition score of your cows can help you plan feeding to ensure your cows have healthy body fat reserves thus promoting milk production, reproductive efficiency and cow longevity. This can also reduce feed cost by trimming down the feed of overweight cows.

Increase milk production

Keeping your cows at the ideal condition during lactation will help ensure maximum milk yield. With regular updates you can ensure they follow the ideal body condition curve.

Improve breeding and calving

Regular score updates can be used to ensure cows have the ideal condition at insemination and calving. The right body condition throughout the pregnancy can reduce calving and post calving problems, while ensuring calves have an ideal start to life.

Reduce labor costs

Automatic body condition scoring eliminates the need for manual scoring. This means you can use your time to carry out other important tasks on the farm.
