Abstract
In the goat we have found in the early nursing period that infundibulin (the active principle of the posterior part of the hypophysis), when injected into the vein of the ear, rapidly and greatly increased the secretion of milk. The nipple had a cannula inserted into it, and a water aspirator produced the suction necessary to empty the udder. The milk before and after the injection was caught in a graduated flask and measured every five minutes. The following experiment will given an idea of the activity of the infundibulin:
