The latest addition to the ICBF presentations page is a presentation on milk recording potential and explanation put together by Don Crowley of Teagasc.
This presentation makes for quite an interesting read. The image below shows us the importance of data recording and the difference in milk value between herds milk recording, in discussion groups and/or HerdPlus and herds not milk recording. Herds that were milk recording and in a discussion group or HerdPlus seen €184 higher output per cow.
The Presentation also has some interesting information on EBI.
