Thoughts

  • Can be done at shows or other events
  • We believe that One-day milk tests don’t really show too much of what our does are capable of, if they are done at the beginning of the lactation only.  To be more viable, we can do several One-day tests at varying intervals or near the end of the lactation

Points

Note: These points are for does that are regularly milked Twice a Day (TAD). We will add points for does regularly milked Once A day (OAD)

1 point will be awarded to each doe for each pound of milk given in the 24 hour period

0.1 points will be awarded to each doe for each 10 day period since she freshened

1 point will be awarded to each doe for each 0.05 pounds of butterfat produced in the 24 hour period
