Mobility Scoring Workshop

Online

Mobility scoring has become a commonly performed recording tool for dairy farmers supplying Supermarket contracts.  It is a very good and effective method of both evaluating the level of lameness and the progress made on farm to either reduce levels of lameness or maintain a low level.

To fulfil supermarket requirements mobility scoring can be done by on-farm staff, however, there is a drive by the dairies to have the scoring done by an independent person. Learn to accurately mobility score so that you can offer this service to your clients.
