Holstein Canada shares classification data

Holstein Canada has agreed to share classification data with The Alberta Dairy Hoof Health Project, facilitating analysis of relationships between hoof lesion incidence and conformation scores for feet & legs. Unambiguous official registration numbers can be identified for approximately 85% of the cows for which hoof health records have been collected. Of these, approximately 80% have been classified by Holstein Canada, providing conformational analysis scores for 6 features of the physical structure of feet and legs. A short article explaning conformational analysis is available here.
