ABSTRACT
The article highlights the decision making process among farmers in New Zealand about which and when to cull cows from the herd. According to the author, lactation worth (LW) shows what the cow has achieved in the current season which is significant to determine if the potential of breeding worth (BW) is being reached. It mentions that the number of empty cows versus the replacement rate remains the main limiting factor for culling cows.
