A little bit of background information when reading the market report:

The letters A - E refer to butt shape/muscling of the beast, with A being the best (well muscled) and E the worst (no muscle).

The numbers 1-6 refer to the amount of fat cover, with 1 being skinny (less than 2mm on the rump) and 6 being overfat (32mm + on rump)

Therefore:

Catagory D3 refers to animals that are of average butt muscle and average fat coverage - they are not fat, but they are also not poor.
