Fun and fabulous prizes* for whoever guesses the answer first. But guessing the answer involves figuring out the question. Sounds like a contest hosted by Cheshire the Cat, no?

mdt and Black Sheep can't play. Nor can they cheat and give you the answer, so don't ask them.

Today's clue: 16,748

*fabulous is in the eye of the beholder.

This is easy.

16,748 is the lactation average for Brown Swiss cows with records used in national genetic evaluations and calving in 1997 in New Jersey.

24,302 is the lactation average for Holsteins with records used in national genetic evaluations and calving in 1997 in California.

Got Milk Statistics?

Amazon sales rank of the EGullet guy's book?

Indeed! Who doesn't like a game of Follow the Bouncing Fat Guy? After all, I figure such discussion is probably verboten over there.

Now I'll have to think of a Competition: Round Two.

cjsadler, next time I see you I'll get you your prize. Perhaps an umbrella drink? A share in an orca platter? Something from the Speigel catalog (Chicago 60609)?
