Quantitative estimates of mammary growth during various physiological states: a review


, : Quantitative estimates of mammary growth during various physiological states: a review. Journal of Dairy Science 70(9): 1958-1966

Trends in growth and development of the mammary gland in ruminants (primarily the cow) and rate from birth to conception, during pregnancy and during and after lactation are reviewed, and the possibility of speeding up mammary development and slowing involution by the use of lighting regimes, feeding or hormones (particularly somatotropin or corticosteroids) is discussed.
