Pay attention to teat, udder scoring
Cattle Business Weekly
As fall calving begins, the North American Limousin Foundation (NALF) encourages its members to score their cows’ teat sizes and udder suspensions so the data can help guide future selection decisions.
The Beef Improvement Federation (BIF) adopted standardized guidelines for teat and udder scoring last year. The system requires a separate score for each, both on 9-point scales. Breeders should evaluate their cows within 24 hours after calving.
