Nutritional regulation of milk fat synthesis.
Certain diets cause a marked reduction in milk fat production in ruminants. Commonly referred to as milk fat depression (MFD), the mechanism involves an interrelationship between rumen microbialExpand

Partitioning of nutrients during pregnancy and lactation: a review of mechanisms involving homeostasis and homeorhesis.
Control of metabolism during pregnancy and lactation involves two types of regulation-homeostasis and homeorhesis. Homeostasis control involves maintenance of physiological equilibrium or constancyExpand

Identification of the conjugated linoleic acid isomer that inhibits milk fat synthesis.
Conjugated linoleic acids (CLA) are octadecadienoic fatty acids that have profound effects on lipid metabolism. Our previous work showed that CLA (mixture of isomers) markedly reduced milk fatExpand

Trans-octadecenoic acids and milk fat depression in lactating dairy cows.
We examined the role of trans-octadecenoic acids in milk fat depression when low fiber diets were fed. The study consisted of four experimental periods with a 2 x 2 factorial arrangement ofExpand

The effect of breed, parity, and stage of lactation on conjugated linoleic acid (CLA) in milk fat from dairy cows.
Dairy products are the main source of conjugated linoleic acid (CLA), a functional food component with health benefits. The major source of cis-9, trans-11 CLA in milk fat is endogenous synthesis viaExpand

The environmental impact of dairy production: 1944 compared with 2007.
A common perception is that pasture-based, low-input dairy systems characteristic of the 1940s were more conducive to environmental stewardship than modern milk production systems. The objective ofExpand

Regulation and nutritional manipulation of milk fat. Low-fat milk syndrome.
Abstract Diet-induced low-fat milk syndrome, milk fat depression (MFD), was first described over a century ago. It continues to be an active research area and we reviewed theories that have beenExpand
