Replication Data for: Effects of lameness definition and assessment frequency on lameness incidence estimates in dairy cattle Eriksson, Hanna; Daros, Ruan; von Keyserlingk, Marina; Weary, Daniel


The objectives of the manuscript for which this data was used were to evaluate how (1) lameness definition, and (2) assessment frequency, affect identification and classification (mild or severe lameness) of new lameness cases in dairy cattle. Dairy cows (n = 262) were followed from the cessation of lactation until the next calving, and locomotion was assessed weekly. Two data set are available - one including all locomotion assessments for each cow, and one with the data summarised by animal.
