Twenty top-gaining bucks

View pictures of the twenty top-gaining bucks, as of September 9 at ...GoatTest/2010/top20gainers.html.

The goats will be weighed for a final time on September 23, after which time the rankings will likely reshuffle.

In order to be eligible for the sale on October 2, bucks must ALSO meet Gold, Silver, and/or Bronze standards of performance for parasite resistance and resilience AND minimum standards for reproductive soundness and structural correctness.

Bucks which do not make the sale may be sold via private treaty, picked up by their owners, taken to a sale barn, or harvested to collect carcass data.
