This ebook makes a speciality of a few of the points of family animal recording, aimed toward enhancing the administration of herds and extending their productiveness. New options for recording are illustrated and the main up to date applied sciences are offered, at the foundation of nationwide reviews the place such applied sciences are already followed. even supposing livestock is the trendy species, elements are devoted to small ruminants recording and to buffalo recording. destiny demanding situations and possibilities for additional improvement of ICAR and the definition of the long run eventualities within the animal recording region also are defined. a distinct part is devoted to ''Improving the well-being features by means of recording and evaluation'', the place the prior and way forward for animal recording and using animal recording information for genetic review and breeding are outlined. one other part bargains with the ''ICAR Reference Laboratory Network'', the place the reference platforms, the rules and the practices for calibration process for regimen milk checking out are awarded. The ebook ends with the nationwide information at the ''Yearly enquiry at the scenario of milk recording in member countries'' for the years 2003 and 2004. a complete of forty five pages describes the methodologies used at nationwide point for milk recording, the nationwide info for milk construction, the prices of recording and the productiveness and numbers of recorded livestock at nationwide point (divided through species and by means of herdbook)

The move from smaller to a larger herd, often includes additional technology in the barn. ), and thereby replaces some of the needs for recording data used for management. From this follow the need for milk recording services to change and develop accordingly. Examples on why recording is still a valuable part of dairying follow here after. Back up systems The modern dairy farm produces a lot of data. Business and decisions get more complicated, and the interest in detecting relatively detailed issues is a necessity.

Conclusion Milk recording and data collection is still a very important part of milk production, but we must prepare for rather dramatic changes in our services according to the development on the farms. We also have to adjust services to new lab technologies, on farm analysis, data handling and benchmarking. It all opens new fields for traditional milk recording, but it can not be done the traditional way. Our experience is that recording association has a job to coordinate between farmers and various firms related to milk meters and data collection.
