Eliminating milk-component values when all cows have the same value

By George Wiggans

A system was implemented that checks the fat and protein percentages and somatic cell scores of all cows for each herd test day and blanks those data fields when all or nearly all cows have the same value. For herds with samples collected less frequently than milk is weighed, this situation has occurred when herd values are recorded for the first test of a cow because no samples were collected on that test day.
