An extensive amount of data is presented on the growth in weight of the dairy cow from 2 to 17 years of age, covering practically the entire duration of life. The data show that after the age of 2 years the rate of growth declines in a non-cyclic manner. The course of decline in growth follows the course of decline of a monomolecular chemical reaction; that is, the percentage decline in growth with age is constant.
