The need of an investigation into the problem of inheritance of fat in milk, has long been recognized by the practical milk producer and the physiologist. For the former, a solution of the problem would simplify, very markedly, his breeding operations, as well as increase the certainty of his results. For the latter, a knowledge of the fat producing possibilities of the animal genetically would give an index to the physiological limits of fat formation, and its relation to metabolism.
