The objectives of this study were to compare the multiple trait prediction (MTP) model estimate of 305-d lactation yield with the 305-d daily milk yield data from on-farm automated meters and software and to examine the accuracy of electronic identification (ID). Twenty-four-hour milk and component yields are calculated by using milk weights and samples collected 8 to 10 times/yr by Dairy Herd Improvement (DHI) organizations. Daily milk weights were collected from cows on 20 Canadian farms that… CONTINUE READING
