KEY - 12 points References that may be helpful are on in the class folder. They include: Culling the Commercial Cow Herd (J. Massey. Good overview and very applied). Body Condition Scoring Cows (a Powerpoint slide lecture not presented in class but given here as a study aid) Gelbvieh Udder Scoring Ultrasound for Reproduction Management (BCH 2400) Using Ultrasound for Pregnancy Checking (Limousin World, 1996) Some serious spelling issues: Udder, can’t, dystocia, bred,. and teat (do not state “tit”),separate, calf, calve. Also – it is feed, not food, and not all bovines are referenced as cows, some are calves, steers, fed cattle, market cattle and so forth. 1. Name some reasons why a cow is culled from the herd (say at least 5). Which are more prevalent? 5 points total Some example answers could include: Age, feet and let problems, cancer eye, poor udder structure, low weaning weights of calves, bred late in season, failure to breed, disposition, etc. etc. Most prevalent is failure to breed DO NOT answer: died – not a conscience decision to cull (nor is accidents, etc). Illness is too vague as all problems can be considered disease (at least by AnS 101 definition). Management decisions is also too vague; they are all management decisions.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
