"Investigation into the laws which form the basis of the rational feeding of live-stock has been most actively and industriously carried on of late years, and very important advances have been made, especially in Germany, where this branch of applied science has been most attentively and persistently studied. The period since the year 1860, in particular, has been a remarkably fruitful one; within this period the theory of feeding has been placed on a firm, scientific foundation, and the direction of its future progress has been marked out; and while very much still remains to be done, the results already achieved are of great practical importance."
