How do these two labels relate to OFA?

Are dogs with Fast Normal and NZ still allowed to breed?

Thanks in advance.....

Go to the OFA website to see the table of comparisons. Fast Normal is equilalent to OFA borderline,  NZ compares to mild HD. Both are regularly used for breeding in Europe.

I enter a lot of dogs and dogs with Fast normal most often go OFA Good, and so do A1 normals.
I'm saying this based on past pedigree entry memory and dogs that were imported to the USA with an stamp and OFAed later,
The biggest difference is just that the A stamp was done at a year of age in Germany, and the OFA was done at 2 years or older in the USA. NZ (a3), and Good are passing scores.

Here are some dual hip scored dogs, born in Germany, Then Exported to the USA or Canada and OFAed at a later age.
All these were campaigned dogs, so they had scores from both sides of the Atlantic Ocean.
1.VA2/CAN SELECT/US CH Jim vom Fiemereck a1 OFA good
2.V Chap von Antheus OFA Good, Should be A stamped
3.V Nurmi von den Maibuchen OFA Good
4.V Fix von Batu OFA Good
5.VA Vimo vom Fiemereck OFA Excellent

I'm sure there are many more. Can anyone get the A Stamp scores of these or a list of other A stamped and OFAed individuals?

The breeding partner for a NZ dog would depend on both dog's ZW number, you can not breed two dogs who's combined ZW exceeds 200.

Be careful when making inferences between hip scores of the same dog under different organizations, how much time has passed between the evaluations?
