Dear Seyed,

The problem is that HYS has been treated as a covariate and not as a
Append !I to its declaration and run the analysis again.

It would also be better to rescale milk by dividing by say 1000

Also, since probably has many levels, you will probably need to rewrite
the model
as milk ~ mu Age !r animal !f HYS

These changes are in the following.

Milk data analysis
 animal !P
 Age !I
 milk !/1000
milk ~ mu Age !r animal !f HYS

Hopefully, that will solve your problems

May Jesus Christ be gracious to you in 2008,
