Sorry to correct.
In sorting the order is 1 - 0. (If you sorted 0 and then 9, you would be sorting backwards and earn a DQ) There are different classes of sorting. |

I think smrobs was saying that the cows are numbered 0-9 (like 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, and 9), not saying the cows are sorted 0 to 9.

But like mls said, when you go to sort the order you follow is:

1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 0

When they call a number (say the announcer says 8) the sorter would start with the 8 cow and follow the number pattern

8 9 0

Then the order loops back to the beginning

1 2 3 4 5 6 7
