Least-squares analysis was carried out on 1046 lactation records, obtained in 1960-67 from the daughters of 21 Brown Swiss bulls at a farm in Venezuela, in an attempt to investigate the effect of genetic and environmental factors on milk yield. 305-day lactation milk yield averaged 2622 kg for heifers and 3025 kg for cows.
