THE name of Kellner figures pre-eminently in the annals of the science of animal nutrition. Towards the end of the last century at a time when little or no attention was being devoted in Great Britain to the elucidation of the scientific principles underlying the economic feeding of farm animals, Kellner was carrying out,in Germany a series of classical researches which had the ultimate effect of raising the art of feeding to the level of a science. Indeed, the rapid progress which has been made in Great Britain during the last three decades in the development and application of the principles of feeding is, in large measure, a tribute to the excellence of Kellner's pionecsr work.
