The work performed in this laboratory and elsewhere during the past fifteen years has shown conclusively that a diet adequate for growth may not necessarily fulfill the requirements for lactation. The excellent work of Evans and Bishop (1) has conclusively demonstrated that a specific vitamin is required for reproduction. The fact that lactation is not normal on many synthetic and even natural diets suggests the possibility that all of the factors necessary for normal development are not known. The work in this paper was planned in order to increase our knowledge concerning the nutritional factors involved in milk secretion and rearing of young.
