    I have a silly questions - but I think this would help everyone - as I am having trouble finding the information - mainly from AGS - but it would be great for a quick reference -

    What do all those "things" mean on a pedigree - such as *S and MCH and so forth. I know most of them, but it would be great to have the lists for AGS and ADGA.

    Thanks all you "show" people!

    *S= The sire has earned his production star.
    MCH= Master Champion (has earned all their Champion legs)
    GCH= Grand Champion(has earned all their Champion legs in ADGA
    *M= The doe has earned their milk star

    +*B= The buck has 3 *M daughters from three different dams. Atleast 2 of the dams must be registered or recorded with ADGA. OR the buck has 2 +B sons, or he has one AR son and two AR and/or *M daughters, or he has one +B son and two AR and/or *M daughters

    I'm pretty sure for AGS it is the same thing as it is with the ADGA, except AGS has *S instead of *B for bucks and *D instead of *M for does.

    AR is the Advanced Registry.

    "AR (Advanced Registry) is based on DHIR records and actual milk test records. ST is based on progeny performance, one-day tests, or owner sampler records." As quoted from the ADGA website.

    If a doe milks above what she is required to on milk test or has a really high percentage on butterfat or protein in her milk than she may qualify to be in the AR.
