Improve Cow Health
Body condition scores act as an early warning system. When a cow deviates from the ideal body condition score curve you can respond on sooner to help your cows be healthier and more productive.
Body condition scores are used as a critical measure of how effective the feeding strategy is on a farm. Knowing the accurate body condition score of your cows every day can help you plan a feeding strategy to ensure your cows maintain the correct balance throughout lactation.
Profitable Milk Production
Keeping your cows at the ideal condition during lactation helps to ensure that fresh cows milk well, become pregnant on time and that you can reduce feed cost and intakes in late lactation to deliver profitable milk production and longevity.
Successful Reproduction and Calving
Having regular scores 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 Labour 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, confident that accurate body condition scores are being recorded, automatically.
