Abstract
Tt is rare to find any herd of native cows being milked without, at the same time, the calves being allowed to stand By their mothers' heads. The reason for the procedure, we are told, is that other- wise the cows will not let down their Milk. This suggests some voluntary res- traint on the cow's part, exercised as a protest against removal of a mother's privilege, but according to J. Hammond, in an article on "The Physiology of Milk and Butterfat Secretion," which appeared in the Veterinary Record of 25th April, 1936, the explanation is otherwise.
