I was very surprised when I saw an incorrect chart in the USA Sieger Show program booklet this past spring. Even the fine folks at the USA organization seem to be confused.......
OFA simplified the above chart info into the following and posted it on their website. It basically shows the same values.
OFA comparison chart shows the following........
a2 (fast normal) being "borderline" and a3 (noch zugelassen) being "mild".......
How many breeders use "Fast Normal" dogs in their breeding programs while they pass up "Fair" and "Borderline" dogs?
How many breeders are confused and think they're breeding to improve hips and instead are perpetuating the problem?

I've been surprised by how many "experienced breeders" don't understand or dont care about the above charts.

a dog with FCI rating C equals zugelassen , but was given OFA fair in USA
numerous dogs with FCI rating B , all got OFA exelent
so my actual findings do not come even close to the above chart
maybe interesting to do some double or triple test again these days

I had a dog FN and she was rated Excellent with GDC before GDC became part of OFA. I have a NZ male and his hips look great.
Carina von der Wienerau was NZ and she was OFA good at 35 months.
See for yourself: http://offa.org/results.html?all=carina+von+der+wienerau
She was not "a" normal as she is listed here. She is in the Winsis as NZ.
