Frame Score Chart

NOTE:

In order to maintain moderate frame scores and efficiency, certification measurements are required for bulls with ML8 and HML8 generation scores. Refer to the MAA - Vision and Objectives (Note 12) located in section 12 of the Rules & Regulations. Although certification measurements are not required for bulls at ML4 or HML4 and lower generation scores, producers are encouraged to carefully monitor their frame scores.
