Production differences associated with body condition score at calving and production index among cows in commercial herds



Production differences associated with body condition score at calving and production index among cows in commercial herds



Occasional Publication, New Zealand Society of Animal Production 8(Dairy production from pasture): 174-175



In a field study of 31 dairy herds the main factor influencing post-partum change in condition score was condition score at calving. Daily milk fat yield increased from 0.74 to 0.82 kg as calving condition score increased from under 3.5 to over 7; lactation differences were not so marked.
