A method of finding the parameters pertaining to one of the variables of milk production, constituent production, and constituent percentage when the parameters pertaining to the two other variables are known is presented. The method is based on the expectation of products of random variables. This method and the delta approximation method are compared to sampling estimates from simulated data.
