CowSignals provides a framework to structure cow observations so that management and animal welfare can be improved. By spending time observing your herd and answering key questions regarding Feed, Water, light, Air, Rest and space you can identify areas which are good and areas which could be improved. These improvements could be simple things like regular cleaning of water troughs or providing more light in a shed to more major issues such as cubicle space and improving cow flow around a shed.
A lot of information can be found in the handouts which can be found here.
