Body Condition Scoring for Beef Cattle


Body condition scoring is a valuable tool for evaluating animal health and performance in the field, and is important for both producers and grazing planners. In this episode of Grazing Planners Speak, Travis Meeter (University of Illinois Extension) walks us through how to evaluate body condition and what it tells us about a producer’s grazing regime. Grazing Planners Speak is a series of informative, on-farm videos featuring experienced grazing planners. The series is designed to provide current and would-be grazing technical service providers with a comprehensive overview of the in-field components of grazing planning. This video is part of the Regenerative Ag Idea Network's Grazing Planning course. Filming and editing by Windborne Media.
