Abstract

Milk is a product secreted by the milk gland or udder. The milk gland makes milk from the food under the influence of hormones. Cows eat grass, hay and cut maize. Besides that they also get concentrate foods. The cow chews and ruminates all this food. In the rumen (one of the four stomachs of the cow) the food is broken down by bacteria and enzymes; it is then absorbed into the blood.
