If these data disappear it is equal to loose money. Modern recording services must meet the challenge of hosting the huge amount of data on behalf of the dairy farmer. Benchmarking In any industry there is a need to compare with colleagues. In dairy business a lot of comparable items are relevant to benchmark. Age at first calving, average cell count, and production in a well defined period etc. When a farmer is benchmarking against data from other herds, a natural question is if these data are reliable.

83, 1115-1124. G. Roelofs, G. W. O. Box 454, 6800 AL Arnhem, The Netherlands Abstract Based on comments on imprecision of the estimation method for 24-hour fat percentage in AM/PM milk recording schemes the regression formula was extended and re-estimated. Non-linearity for the existing effects of protein percentage of the milk sample, interval before sampling, milk amount of sample, milk amount of previous milking and interval before the previous milking was incorporated by using polynomials. Extensions were made by adding the effects of time of sampling, parity and month of sampling as class variables and lactation stage as polynomial.
