1) The present state of knowledge about the
inheritance of milk yield and fat is summarised.
2) The design of the present investigation with
material and method of work are briefly described.
3) From the analysis of 330 samples of milk and
examination of the correlation table between the
yield of milk and the yield of protein it is suggested: (1) that the yield of protein is inherited with
the yield of milk. (2) that there are cases which
may affect the yield of milk, without affecting the
yield of protein.
