The maintenance of lactation in the goat after hypophysectomy

, : The maintenance of lactation in the goat after hypophysectomy. Journal of Endocrinology 23: 79-96

Five adult goats were hypophysectomized during lactation; within 10 days their milk yields dropped to a fifth or less of the pre-operative levels. Daily milk yield was increased by giving daily injections of anterior-pituitary extract from cattle or sheep. Prolactin and somatotrophin appear to be major components of the lactogenic and galactopoietic complexes in the goat, but further study is required.
