Milk Urea Nitrogen: Precision, Accuracy, and Individual Animal Variability
Reed, K.F.; Wood, E.M.; Portnoy, M.; Barbano, D.
MUN can be a useful metric for managing diets and assessing environmental impacts but it is difficult to interpret without knowledge of the expected variability or measurement error. I will discuss results from some recent work we did in collaboration with the Barbano lab to define expected variation in MIR analysis of MUN from individual cow milk samples.
