        When doing research about my milk cow and the whole milking experience, I learned that 30% of dairy cows don't have a sufficient oxycontin response which is what causes milk let down. Not sure if its because modern dairy cows are selected for volume production, not mothering abilities, but oxytocin is the key behind the mother/calf bond that makes her feel like letting milk flow so the calf can nurse. Many dairies have to give oxycontin injections before milking time.

        Makes me wonder if there is ever a similar problem in humans.

          Oxytocin is the hormone involved in developing trust and meaningful relationships ... it's not only involved in lactation and parturition.

          Most hormones are very multifunctional, though they may be spelt differently in males.

            A-yep.
            Most folks don't know about the 'dairy' function though. Doesn't come up in the headlines as often as the touchy-feely aspect.

            It also is why the term 'settled' is used about a pregnant mammal. Basking in the hormonal glow. To a point
