The average weight of the calved heifers only, over 33% of the herd, was 356kg for mostly jersey crossbred heifers. The average condition score is slightly on the low side but the average is less important.

What is important is to pick out the cows in very low condition score and put them on once a day milking to allow them gain condition. While on once a day milking these cows will be fed well, as well as if they were on twice a day milking because otherwise you would lose a lot of milk output that would be hard to re-gain.
