Guidance for veterinary practitioners, government animal health staff and dairy herd advisers on the Dairy Score.
In situations where determining the Score for a group of cattle is not clear, farmers are advised to contact an approved veterinarian or local State government animal health offices.
Local State government animal health offices or the State BJD coordinators should be contacted in relation to the BJD requirements for interstate movement, and any other animal health requirements.
Please contact your local State government animal health office for advice.
The Dairy Score does not apply to beef cattle.
A Non‐Assessed herd on a dairy farm that subsequently becomes a beef farm is initially ineligible for the Beef Only scheme; unless the dairy herd was enrolled in the CattleMAP.
Please contact your local State government animal health office for further advice regarding Johne’s disease in beef cattle andthe declaration requirements for Beef Only.
