Fact of the Day: Maternal Milk

While virtually all mammals provide milk to their young before they are ready for more solid foods, it also has more benefits than that. Besides the nutrients, often a mother's antibodies are in the milk which helps her baby's immune system.

Oh how I would have loved to have seen two of the above milking a cow.
Such a pity the cow didn't give a bloody good kick......may have knocked some sense into them......then again it may not have.
I reckon Turnip Top may have go a few cow kicks.
I see another one - this time his attorney has departed the sinking ship of state!
I hope Americans were able to watch the MATURE and DIGNIFIED farewell speech at the State Department by Rex Tillerson.
I can hardly wait for a forthcoming expose of that period from him.

Now back to my cow milking!!!!
