Body Condition Score Beef Cows at Weaning
University of Missouri
It’s important to have an idea what degree of body condition (fat) beef cows have according to Eldon Cole, a livestock specialist with University of Missouri Extension.
"A key time to make these body condition scoring (BCS) decisions is at weaning time. Reproduction is highly influenced by fat deposition and cows can be both too thin as well as too fat," said Cole.
