From time immemorial milk has been regarded as the food best adapted to the nourishing of mammalia. It is the sole diet of all mammals during the earlier part of their postnatal development and is also recognized as an excellent staple in the diet of the adult human, especially in the case of invalids. On the farm it is used extensively in the feeding of young animals and in the case of the hog it is fed in large quantities to more mature individuals.
