OFA TO PENNHIP CONVERSION EXPLAINED:

Was trying to find a conversion to the OFA equivalent, with no luck so here's what I came up with. Since we

are really only concerned with the normal range for the breed, Logically:0.250 to 0.397 = Excellent,

0.398 to 0.545 = Good, & 0.546 to 0.69 = Fair. Anything better than 0.249 is obviously rare right now, but

would be Superb if OFA were to go there. This scale ,will shift over time, hopefully toward the lower end of the scale, if breeders continue to persevere in the

efforts to improve this trait. Based on this data, I would consider a PennHIP score of 0.545 to be the absolute

highest to maintain the current status and 0.472 to shift the overall average lower. 0.42 falls below these
