#### Introduction

 According to statistics, the expected revenue of global dairy is more than one hundred million US dollars[1], and in accordance with the data provided by DATA.COA[2], there are 557 dairy farms, 115,685 cows in Q2 2019, and that’s an average of 207 cows per farm. Date back to 2017, the annual report[3] showed that there were only 61,976 cows being bred and 419,342 tons of milk being produced. While digital transformation has became a trend, agriculture and cattle industry also start to embrace new technologies. Under the circumstance of downsizing, the average milk yield per cow in Taiwan has surpassed the average milk yield per cow in Australia, Germany and China...etc, and it is still increasing. The overall Taiwan dairy-strength are catching up the strength of the countries which have a highly developed dairy industry. (such as America and Israel… etc.)The goal of this issue is to predict the milk yield of Taiwan ranches in different regions by referring to the Dairy Herd Improvement, DHI dataset which is provided by Dairy Association Taiwan,R.O.C, hoping that these data can help grasping the key of milk yield forecasting, and thus benefits the dairy in Taiwan in the aspect of  Intellectual Management and pricing.

#### Evaluation Criteria

After the participants prepare the forecasts of the shared item group, the back-end of the system would process them in batches regularly to calculate the score.Evaluations are conducted by calculating the Root-Mean-Square Error, RMSE, of the actual value. The formula is as follows:$$RMSE = \sqrt{{1 \over n} \sum_{j=1}^{n} (y_i - \hat{y}_i) ^ 2}$$References Hi-tech cattle raising- great potential in digital dairy DATA.COA Statistics and annual reports of Council of Agriculture Smart Dairy Farming- Arla, the dairy products manufacturing magnate in northern europe, developed methods to predict milk yield by adopting AI Observation Data Inquire System of Central Weather Bureau
