I placed this class of AOM Yearling bucks under two as: A-B-C-E-D

Entry A places over Entry B in General Appearance for his higher more rounded escutcheon area, more width in his rump and smoother blending of his neck into the withers.

Entry B over Entry C in General Appearance for his width between the straighter set of hocks, more level through his topline and from above has smoother blending of his shoulder into the chest wall.

 

Entry C over Entry E in General Appearance for his width in the rump, longer in bone especially in the loin and more extension to the brisket.

 

Entry E over Entry D in General Appearance for his width in the chest floor and stronger in the knees, straighter and wider between the hocks and deeper in the heart girth in Body Capacity.

Entry D although standing last in this class is to be commended for his General Appearance for his sharp withers and long lean neck.

Placing: C A B E D

C has the advantage in this class for dairy strength. He is the most balanced buck showing more angulation, length of bone and openness. He is excelling A in feet and legs for the strength of his pasterns and perpendicular set from hock to pastern on the rear leg set. 

A over B for his general appearance in the front end assembly. He is more prominent at the point of shoulder and more smoothly blended from the neck into the withers. Showing more extension to the brisket.

B over E for the length and levelness over his back and rump. He's more long and lev from hips to pins. He is longer in the barrel giving him a body capacity advantage. 

E over D for the slight advantage in the chine, he is fuller in the crops and straighter in the foreleg from the front and side views. 

D is to be commended for his depth of rear barrel.

Single entry with a really correct buck in his feet and legs. He is also long and level in his topline, very uphill and showing good dairy strength.
