AGS Classification Scores
We also participate in the American Goat Society’s Classification program. In classification, an animal is given a final percentage score based on 100 being perfect. In addition, each area of the animal is evaluated and assigned points based on how close that part comes to being ideal. For example, if an animal is given four (4) points out of the allotted five (5) on teats, that is 80%, and the owner knows that the teats on that animal are only 80% of the ideal. The Classifier inputs the score of each area of the body into an app on their phone. After they finish, the program calculates the final score, which the Classifier tells you right away. AGS sends you the score breakdown via email within a day or two, but I had my score breakdown much faster than that. The following pdf is the score breakdown.

Honey earned her *M in all three categories (milk, butterfat, and protein) on our September 22, 2022 milk test. She is an AR (Advanced Registry) doe and all her bucklings will have their *B designation as long as their sire is a *B or +B.
Honey’s sire is *B Land of Havilah TRC Midas. Midas is a gorgeous buck, he is very good in head, front and rear legs, and body capacity. He is exceptionally wide with great substance of bone, which he passes on to his kids. ADGA hasn’t been able to provide us with a linear appraisal since 2019, so I’m excited to see how he scores as a mature buck and seeing how his daughters appraise.
Honey’s dam is SG Land of Havilah ShekinahGlory 2*M. Shekinah was an excellent doe and she blessed us with Honey before she passed in 2021.

Shekinah was#2 on the State of Michigan 2013 DHIR Honor Roll for milk, butterfat & protein.
Shekinah earned SG status in September 2013.
She is long bodied, has nice leg placement and angulation. I really like how solid and long her body is, her ears are an improvement over her dam’s, as they go over an inch past her nose. She has a nice roman nose, and she is really smart, plus she’s very friendly and easy to work with. She excels in Dairy strength and was very good in Front and Rear Legs, Feet, Back, Rump, Udder Texture, General Appearance, Body Capacity, and Mammary.
