Points Calculation

1 point will be awarded for every 10 pounds of milk produced 

 

1 point will be awarded for each 15 day period since the goat freshened (based on the first day of the test). No more than 40% of the total points may be derived from days in milk. 

* Note 1:  Black points are for Twice A Day Milking (TAD)

             Green Points are for Once A Day Milking (OAD)
* Note 2: Based upon our own herd and other extensive research when we went from TAD to OAD milking, one loses roughly 20-30% production.  We will average it out to 25% loss in production and reflect this in the points.The loss also depends upon the stage of lactation, consistency of milking, breed and many other factors.
