Abstract

Components of variance are estimated for the three-way classification analysis of variance of DHIA reported first and second milk and fat records of artificially sired Holstein cows and of Owner-Sampler reported milk and fat records of artificially sired Holstein cows. The total variance of milk and fat records is partitioned into the following components with the approximate percent of total variance: sire, 6%; year-season, 2%; herd, 30%; sire by year-season, 0%; sire by herd, 1–2%; herd by year-season, 6–8%; sire by herd by year-season, 1–7%; and residual, 50%.
