hormonal regulation of lactation: during gestation: *high progesterone, stimulates mammary alveoli development, *estradiol, stimulates alveolar ducts, inhibits prolactin release, inhibits prolactin influence on mammary gland
post partum: progesterone and estradiol rapidly decline, prolactin secretion no longer inhibited, stimulates mammary alveoli milk production
suckling response stimulates release of oxytocin
oxytocin stimulates smooth muscle contraction of alveolar ducts, milk expressed, milk let down reflez, stimulates uterine smooth muscle contractions
cessation of suckling milk accumulates, inhibits prolactin secretion, milk production stops, involution of mammary glands
milk composition dependent upon components, species, state of lactation, non nutritive factos, completeness of milking
