Buck rankings

The following links provide a complete ranking of the bucks according to growth rate (average daily gain/ADG), parasite resistance (high and average fecal egg counts), and parasite resilience (average FAMACHA scores).

It's important to remember that parasites did not pose a significant threat this year. Few goats required deworming and egg counts were not as high as other years.
