Could someone offer an explanation of how the scores (such as those in parentheses below) are arrived at?

Hey Bubba,

I'd be interested to know what judge 2 (35.4286) and judge 3 (32.0) saw different that the other judges that all gave you 36.0.

I think that is the highest pork score (179.4286) I have ever seen....that is farking impressive! WOW!

appearance # times .5714, Taste # times 2.2858, Tenderness # times 1.1428. So 999 = 9*.5714 + 9 * 2.2858 + 9 * 1.1428 = 36.

If appearance = 8 then instead of 36 you have 35.4286.

If taste = 8 then instead of 36 you have 33.7142.

Add the best 5 scores of judges for the category total so 5 999 + 1 899 = 179.4286.

Thanks, Ford.

Since brain activity is taking the day off, I have one more question... The three numbers mentioned - .5714, 2.2858, 1.1428 - added together equal 4. What is the significance of the number 4?

Thanks for the explanation Ford!

I suspect it was all about making a perfect score an even number. Max score of 9, total weight of 4, max score per judge is 36. Low score dropped and the 5 remaining yield an even 180.

Thanks, Ford.
