The study is focused on the capability of artificial neural networks to forecast milk yield for both full and standardised lactations. We used a dataset of 108,931 daily milk yields (dataset A) collected from three lactations of dairy cows managed in a production farm. Using the actual data on daily milk yields and the data recorded on official milk recording test days, a number of neural networks were designed and parameters of Wood's model were estimated. The quality of each network and… CONTINUE READING
