Description

This data set contains hourly observations on progesterone and an activity index at hourly intervals since calving on seven dairy cows.

Format

reprocows is a data frame containing 13040 rows. id is the cow ID, progesterone is a measurement of the hormone in ng/L taken from a milk sample, activity is a relative measure of activity calculated from a pedometer.

There are a large number of missing values as progesterone is measured only at milking time (and at a farm manager's discretion). Missing values in activity occur due to hardware problems can occur with pedometers.
