I am looking for some comparative information about lactation.
Specifically I would like to know:
 
    1)  The volume of milk/day
    2)  Percentage of protein and fat in the milk
    3)  Number of teats
    4)  Frequency of suckling
    5)  Length of lactation
 
    For the following species:
 
        mice
        rats
        rabbits
        cattle
        pigs
        sheep
        goats
        whales
 
If the information is readily available could you please point me to the
citation.
 
Thanks
 
Bob
