Virginia Administrative Code
Title 2. Agriculture
Agency 5. Department of Agriculture And Consumer Services
Chapter 290. Breeder Sheep Grade Standards
6/30/2022

2VAC5-290-40. Good grade; general appearance.

Good grade sheep are desirable mutton-type sheep, but may not be excellent in conformation, quality, and natural muscling. They show fairly normal development for their age-breed and type considered-and have the general appearance of thrift and vitality. Good grade sheep may be slightly long in relation to their width and depth and may be rangy in appearance, or they may be somewhat low set and compact. They are fairly thick, but may show less thickness at one end than at the other. They have a moderately dense and uniform fleece.
