Mobility scoring for dairy cows

The mobility score of your herd shows you how many cows are lame at any one time. This allows you to more effectively manage your control plan and treatment.

What are the main benefits of mobility scoring?

  • Recognise the early signs of poor mobility by regularly assessing cows, prompting foot-trimming and action lists
  • Identifies new problems at an early stage and monitor mobility trends
  • Provides figures to benchmark performance
  • Increases your awareness of cow foot health
  • Motivates farm staff to improve herd mobility and overall herd health
