  • COUNT - Calculates the total number of animals that match your command condition(s).
  • LIST (SHOW) - Generates a DairyComp report that matches your command conditions. In Platform Command Line, LIST and SHOW are interchangeable commands. In DairyComp 305, the LIST command may be used to print the report, while SHOW displays the report on the screen.
  • SUM - Generates summary statistical animal data matching your command conditions, and presents the data in a table or graph format. The graph view is flexible and may be adjusted on the fly.
