*Thanks to all of the breeders that participated in the 2015 research study.

*Our response rate was 42%. A higher response rate would have yielded more directional data.

Norma McDannel, Cindy Jepsen, Theresa Jepsen, Aimee McCreery, Mary Watkins, Sheila Angerer, Taylor Ragains, Alli Meaux, Connie Schultz, Michelle Slater, Riley McKenna, Denise Murphy.Working with you has been a rewarding experience.

The purpose of USACPF Clydesdale research study is to help establish an understanding of breeding direction within the U.S. Clydesdale population.
