    We were appraised last Wednesday but I've been busy so I haven't gotten around to post them till now :) We had Eric Jermain(co-owner of the One*Oak*Hill herd) for our appraiser this year, he was very honest and very knowledgeable and I learned a lot from this session.

    So, without further adieu, here are the scores :)

    Wonderful!! Looks like things are coming along!

    Can you please explain to me how to read the scores - I have always been curious - and I posted the appraisals on the girl that I am getting, the buck she is being bred to and her sister - but don't know what it means -

    Thanks everybody! I'm very happy with how we did :)

    Allison, since there seem to be a lot of people who ask what the scores mean, I'm going to start a thread later in Dairy Diaries explaining how appraisal works :)
