Abstract: Body Condition Score (BCS) of a dairy cow is a magnificent indicator for determining energy reserves of cows. The purpose of this study is to assess BCS of dairy cattle by analyzing cows' rear-view images. In order to do so, we first model shape of cow's tailhead area by using active shape model. Then, angle features are modelled as multiple regression model for estimating scores. The experimental results show that proposed system is promising compared to some existing methods.
