Body condition score

Consulter le resumé

Body condition scoring is used for sows in order to evaluate their body composition.

Thus diet quality and amount can be modified to prevent deficiencies or overweight.

Two parameters can be taken into account :

- The weight of the animal.

- The fatness of the animal (backfat measurement or body condition score).

As it is often impossible to weight sows on farm, body condition is mainly linked to the fatness evaluation.
