    Starting on page 42 of the ADGA guidebook it explains the guide lines for DHI and one day milk test also. If you don't have a guidbook there is one on the ADGA website.

    Are the guidelines different for swiss vs other breeds? I thought they were the same...

    Requirements for all full size breeds are the same. Lesser amounts are required for Nigerian Dwarves.

    OK I did some reading.

    you get points for pounds
    1/10 points for ever 10 days fresh
    points for butter fat

    you need 18 points for a milk star .

    Think I got it right.

    Yes, for a One Day test for a doe to earn her star in the Star Registry.

    Requirements for Advanced Registry are quite different.
