ABSTRACT
The article reports on the use of a locomotion scoring system to assess the cost of lameness in individual herds. Such a system, which recognizes the full spectrum of affected cows and not just those with a chronic condition, would allow farmers to view preventative action as an investment and ensure greater profitability overall.
