From: Recognition of lameness and decisions to catch for inspection among sheep farmers and specialists in GB

Decisions to catch Median lameness (IQR) N Median number of breeding ewes (IQR) N
Would catch the first lame sheep with locomotion scores ≥ 2 5 (2 – 6) 59 150 (50 – 320) 67
Would catch the first lame sheep with locomotion score ≥ 3 10 (5 – 10) 40 155 (80 – 350) 41
Would catch the first lame sheep with locomotion score 4 only 10 (8 – 10) 8 200 (150 – 400) 10
