|Number of animals in discovery and prediction data set|
|Total milking time||Ascending time||Time of plateau||Descending time*||Maximum milk flow||Average milk flow|
1 Reliablility > 0.60.
2 Reliablility < 0.60.
*For Desending Time the reliability threshold was changed from 0.60 to 0.50 to increase the number of animals available within the discovery set. Due to the low heritability associated with the trait an insufficient number of animals (n = 85) had reliabilities over 0.60.
