The Bovine Body Condition Scoring App was developed at the University of Wisconsin School of Veterinary Medicine.

This app assists the user in tallying body condition scores of cattle. The app provides the user with a graphical interface to body conditon score cattle. Data stored may include herd name, scorer name, score date, pen id, cow id, lactation, fresh date and bcs (body condition score).

To aid in body condition score assessment, line drawings have been included above the score selector. These drawings depict the different areas on the body the user should focus on and change as the score slider is moved. The drawings are included for each increment of .25 and are based on the system described by Edmondson et al. J. Dairy Sci. 72:68. 1989. Once the desired score has been selected, the user touches the Set BCS button. The data record is stored and the app is ready to score another cow.
