The classification service is an independant unbiased analysis of an animals conformation. The classifier individually inspects each animal and with the use of a special hand-held computer assigns a score to that animal that best describes its overall conformation. This classification score attached to the ancestry of the animal on the pedigree certificate, populating the background and builds value over time as trends in conformation can be seen at a glance. IHFA classifiers are available throughout the year.
In classification an overall final score is attributed to each animal e.g. G (Good); 75 to 79 points, GP (Good Plus); 80 to 84 points, VG (Very Good); 85 to 90 points, EX (Excellent); 90 to 97 points based on conformation.
