Technical Notes

Introduction ( 5 - 8 )

The following notes refer to milk from cows. 

Milk is an excellent food for human beings because it contains essential 
nutrients which are easily digestible.  Milk provides both energy and 
essential body-building compounds. 

Milk is an all-round food stuff and helps give a balanced diet. 
as milk supplies protein, calcium and phosphorus rather than energy, 
it is a good supplement to food-stuffs with high energy and low protein, 
calcium and phosphorus content.
