Micron Results :)

I emailed Professor Lupton at Texas A&M to see if my results were in. They were, but hadn't been mailed out yet. He DID have a spreadsheet with my results :)

I was happy with them, I HAVE been reminded how far I've come in a short while and they are nothing to sneeze at :) The lambs are ALL improvements over their mothers and that's what you want, right?

All tested were yearlings and lambs.

Average AFD 24.2
Average SD 5.5
Average CV 22.9
Average CEM 10.8
Average CF 83.3%
Average SF 24.3
Average <15: 3.13
