Lameness detection Conference paper : Animal hygiene and sustainable livestock production. Proceedings of the XVth International Congress of the International Society for Animal Hygiene, Vienna, Austriain dairy cow production systems is still a difficult and time consuming task. Therefore the Marie Curie Initial Training Networks (ITN) project "BioBusiness" seeks for the development of a visual based automatic lameness detector. In order to validate this new technological method it must be compared with a golden standard (GS) that must be selected from one of the many subjective locomotion scoring methods for lameness detection. In order to select a GS a review of 66 articles related with lameness was performed to determine an approximate number of locomotion scores existing and their respective characteristics. We found 24 different locomotion scoring methods. The most used in the literature was the 5 points discrete locomotion score developed by Sprecher et al. This method fits most of the requirements because it is widely known by possible customers, it uses the uneven gait and arched-back as lameness indicators and it is versatile. The lameness scoring must be assessed by at least two trained observers in order to obtain high inter and intra observer reliabilities.
