INFLUENCE OF FATNESS OF COW AT CALVING. [Newspaper Article] — Malvern Courier and Caulfield Mirror — 15 May 1914

INFLUENCE OP FATNESS OF COW AT CALVING. An examination of the records of ollicial tests with Holstcin-Friesian cows by one of the American experi mental stations showed that the fat contcnt of the milk for a short timo at the beginning of a lactation pe- 1 riod may have little relation to the real average fat contcnt of the milk j produced by any particular animal. Investigations with cows of various breeds and in different conditions > were carried ont, and it is concluded j that,, providing the cow is underfed j after calving, the percentage of fat 1 in the milk for tKe first 20 or 30 days of the lactation period is In- i fluenced to a considerable extent by the futness of the cow at calving. In j some cnRcs this influence appeared to j extend to a certain degree for at I least three months. The tiller of the soil is the most*"* necessary man in the world. He feeds and clothes the world, and with- ] out Mm the world would go naked and starve. .Apparently he is the only, person ...

Beginning j with "sports" or naturally hornless animals, the polled character lias been fixed in these three types to an extent which ensures its reproduction in nn overwhelming majority of ma tings.
