You misunderstood, unfortunately.

Yearling is awarded for having at least 200 points. You don't actually earn reputation for it, or any other badge for that matter.

haha.. well, it was funny how I missunderstood it – Pablo Oct 28 '10 at 13:49
I'm not sure this is right, either. The badge can recur each year, and so I think you get it for earning 200 reputation over the course of the previous year. Otherwise everyone with >200 rep would get the yearling every year. – Joel Coehoorn Oct 28 '10 at 15:30
@Joel It's having 200 reputation per year, yes, but I was glossing over that fact because what's important to this question is not how much per year, but that it's a requirement and not a reward. Exact formula, from here, is reputation ≥ (number of years as an active user) × 200. – Grace Note Oct 28 '10 at 15:33

In order to get the badge yearling, you must have earned 200 points of reputation during that year at least. There is no reputation reward involved with this.
