Improve cattle welfare on your operation by working with compromised (disabled, sick, lame and high-risk) cattle.

A great resource is the Caring for Compromised Cattle manual and poster. The 21-page booklet includes information and color photographs for body-condition-scoring beef and dairy cattle, Beef Quality Assurance marketing code of ethics, steps to prevent compromised animals, transportation of animals and definitions.

The poster includes decision-making steps and description to prevent downer cows (prevention, observation, treatment, separation, transport and euthanasia). It also describes which cattle are transport or downer candidates, and recommendations on handling downer cattle.
