How and When to Collect Pinkeye Scores
Pinkeye scores can be recorded if you have a pinkeye outbreak on farm.
Take the first recording for all animals in the affected mob(s) when the pinkeye outbreak is first noticed.
Use the scoring guide and record all animals in the mob(s) for both affected and unaffected animals.
Preferably, score all animals multiple times to fit in with your management practices and treatment protocols.
Pinkeye scores can be collected in any age group at any time.
