Not illustrated. 1913 edition. Excerpt: ...given in the following table admit of such interpretation. The conditions of the animal preceding the data were as follows: Cow No. 301 had been subjected to severe underfeeding, i. e., she received only about 70 per cent of the food required to produce her milk and maintain her body weight. The food she received during this time was composed of about 5 pounds of a mixture of corn, bran and linseed meal, and about 7 pounds of alfalfa hay, a ration moderately rich in carotin. Her ration was then changed to one practically free from carotin, consisting of white corn, cottonseed meal and bleached alfalfa hay. The cow was brought back to a normal plane of nutrition on this ration. The immediate effect on the composition of the milk and the color of the milk fat is shown in Table 5. The subsequent effect upon the color of the milk fat is given in Table No. 15 of the preceding Bulletin of this series which dealt with the milk fat pigment. Table No. 5.--A Possible Relation Between The Albumin Of Milk And The Color Of The Milk Pat. Ayrshire Cow No. 301. The data in Table No. 5 shows that although the conditions of feed were such that a decline in color would be expected, the reverse was found. The point to be emphasized is that the sharp increase in the color of the milk fat was coincident with an increase in the albumin content of the milk. The result points to the probabilit) of a relation between the higher color and the increase in albumin. Additional evidence pointing to the same relation is the presence of extremely high color along with a very abnormal amount of albumin in colostrum milk, as pointed out later in this paper. An attempt was made to determine if any definite relation exists between the albumin and color as found in the milk more
