Although most of us buy milk by the quart or gallon, farmers measure daily production in pounds. Guernsey cows average 39 pounds of milk a day with a standard deviation of 8 pounds.  For Jerseys the mean daily production is 43 pounds with a standard deviation of 5 pounds.  When being shown at a state fair a champion Guernsey and a champion Jersey each gave 54 pounds of milk.  Which cow's milk production was more remarkable?  Explain.

The Jersey's milk production was comparatively higher. That cow gave slightly more than 2 standard deviations above the average amount of milk (z = 2.2), while the Guernsey gave less than 2 standard deviations more than the average for Guernseys (z = 1.875).
