what is lactation?

what is LACTATION.This is the period during which the female animal releases milk from its udder immediately after parturition and thereafter
(ii) The milk is used to feed the young ones
(iii) It is under the control of hormone, i.e. decrease in profesterone and an increase in oestrogen and oxytocin
(iv) Lactation or milk let-down can be increased, or if the female animal refuses to produce milk, the animal can be injected with oxytocin injection. This inejection will make the animal to secrete milk
(v) Lactation can also be stimulated by the presence of the young ones, presence of the milker, the use of hand to rub the udder and use of machine (milking machine) to milk the cow. Of all the farm animals, milk from goat is the richest and the best

Lactation describes the secretion of milk from the mammary glands and the period of time that a mother lactates to feed her young. The process naturally occurs with all sexually mature female mammals, although it may predate mammals. The process of lactation of feeding milk in all animals including humans is called nursing, and in humans it is also called breastfeeding. Newborn infants often produce some milk from their own breast tissue, known colloquially as witch’s milk.

In most species, lactation is a sign that the female has been pregnant at some point in her life, although it can happen without pregnancy, Nearly every species of mammal has nipples; except for egg-laying mammals, which instead release milk through ducts in the abdomen. In only one species of mammal, the Dayak fruit bat from Southeast Asia, is milk production a normal male function.
