Judges Placings

The numbers in brackets denote the differential score between each placing, with a total of 50 points available for each class. These differentials are used when calculating scores as follows: e.g. if the judge places the animals A (2) B (6) X (2) Y, and the competitor submits A X B Y, the placing of both B and X are each out by 6 points, giving a final score of 50 - 12 = 38 for that class.
