That's great! Don't the four V's mean she scored "Very Good" in all areas?

So say I have an dairy goat that has a final score of 91 VEEE

A Linear Appraisal Score that is 91 VEEE means that the overall quality of the animal was considered 91% of Ideal based on major category scores that were Very Good in General Appearance, Excellent in Dairy Character, Excellent in Body Capacity, and Excellent in Mammary System. However, there is much more to the Linear Appraisal System.



Linear Appraisal actually consists of 3 parts:
  • A Final Score based on an Evaluation of the overall quality of an animal in each of 4 major categories:
  • General Appearance (35% of the Final Score)
  • Dairy Character (20% of the Final Score)
  • Body Capacity (10% of the Final Score)
  • Mammary System (35% of the Final Score)
Based on the following analyses of quality:

  • E = Excellent @ 90% or greater of ideal
  • V = Very Good @ 85-89%
  • + = Good Plus @ 80-84%
  • A = Acceptable @ 70-79%
  • F = Fair @ 60-69%
  • P = Poor @ 59% or less
  • An evaluation of 13 traits on a linear scale (the most important analysis for most breeders)
    Examples are rump width, udder depth, & set to rear legs
  • A coding of particular traits that do not fit a linear scale appraisal system
    Examples are pastern strength, turned out feet, etc.

Her littler mate brother the same day won Grand Champion!

http://caprigemfarm.webs.com/nigeriandwarfbucks.htm
From CapriGem farm: End of the Line Boomerang won Grand Champion Nigerian Buck in the Canadian Goat Society Ring of the Niagara Frontier Show in Dunkirk, NY 6/15/13. Judge said he was very close to the ideal Nigerian Dwarf buck standard, was dairy clear up the neck/head, and was very correct on his feet leg as well as on the move.

YUP I always sell the good ones! :eek: (oh FYI I have two doelings for sale, which are really nice and I know I WILL regret selling)
