Disposition Scoring/Reporting Available Online

17 July 2015

Reporting disposition scores at weaning or yearling is now available under HerdBook Services. When reporting calf data, select the weaning/yearling tab and look for the column labeled DOCILITY. If you click on the column header (DOCILITY) the BIF disposition scores will appear.

1 = Docile. Mild disposition. Gentle and easily handled. Stands and moves slowly during processing. Undisturbed, settled, somewhat dull. Does not pull on headgate when in chute. Exits chute calmly.

2 = Restless. Quieter than average, but may be stubborn during processing. May try to backout of chute or pull back on headgate. Some flicking of tail. Exits chute promptly.

3 = Nervous. Typical temperment is manageable, but nervous and impatient. A moderate amount of struggling, movement and tail flicking. Repeated pushing and pulling on headgate. Exits chute briskly.

4 = Flighty(Wild). Jumpy and out of control, quivers and struggles violently. May bellow and froth at the mouth. Continuous tail flicking. Defecates and urinates during processing. Frantically runs fence line and may jump when penned individually. Exhibits long flight distance and exits chute wildly.

5 = Aggressive. Maybe similar to score 4, but with added aggressive behavior, fearfulness, extreme agitation, and continuous movement which may include jumping and bellowing while in chute. Exits chute frantically and may exhibit attack behavior when handled alone.

6 = VeryAggressive. Extremely aggressive temperament. Thrashes about or attacks wildly when confined in small, tight places. Pronounced attack behavior.
