The International Committee for Animal Recording (ICAR) is a non-governmental organization that provides guidelines, standards and certification for animal identification, animal recording and animal evaluation. The Dairy Cattle Milk Recording Working Group of ICAR is responsible for ensuring that ICAR guidelines related to dairy cattle milk recording are up to date, and developing new guidelines as scientific knowledge advances. The webpage of the Dairy Cattle Milk Recording Working Group hosts research, project reports, and case studies on milk yield recording. Milk yield is a necessary piece of data for calculating Tier 2 estimates of enteric methane production by dairy cattle.
