Estimation of lactation yield from incomplete lactation records


Journal of the Indian Society of Agricultural Statistics 44(3): 216-226
Estimation of lactation yield from incomplete lactation records
In order to estimate the lactation yield of cattle and buffaloes, daily milk yield is recorded at systematic time intervals during the entire lactation period for a sample of selected animals. It may not always be possible, however, to obtain milk records at every time interval for all the selected animals. Two alternative estimators of average lactation yield under village conditions are suggested.
