  1. aModel M1 was developed using the averaged morning and afternoon spectral data. The prediction model M2 was developed by averaging the morning and afternoon spectral data and subsequent multiplication with daily milk yield. The prediction model M3 was computed by weighted averaging, where each morning or afternoon absorption spectra was multiplied to the respective milk yield
