Conjugated Linoleic Acid Is Synthesized Endogenously in Lactating Dairy Cows by Δ9-Desaturase
: Conjugated linoleic acid (CLA) is a naturally occurring anticarcinogen found in milk fat and body fat of ruminants. Although CLA is an intermediate in ruminal biohydrogenation of linoleic acid, weExpand

Digestion, ruminal fermentation, ciliate protozoal populations, and milk production from dairy cows fed cinnamaldehyde, quebracho condensed tannin, or Yucca schidigera saponin extracts.
Four ruminally cannulated lactating cows were used in a 4 x 4 Latin square design (28-d periods) to determine the effects of cinnamaldehyde (CIN; 1 g/cow per day), condensed tannins from quebrachoExpand

Conjugated linoleic acids alter milk fatty acid composition and inhibit milk fat secretion in dairy cows.
Conjugated linoleic acids (CLA) have positive health effects in experimental models. Our objective was to determine the effect of CLA supplementation on milk of dairy cows. A commercial source of CLAExpand

Fatty acid profile and physical properties of milk fat from cows fed calcium salts of fatty acids with varying unsaturation.
Holstein cows (n = 24) averaging 42 d in milk were used in a randomized complete block design during a 4-wk trial. A control total mixed ration (TMR) was compared with TMR supplemented with Ca saltsExpand

Milk yield and composition during abomasal infusion of conjugated linoleic acids in dairy cows.
Conjugated linoleic acids refer to a mixture of positional and geometric isomers of linoleic acid with conjugated double bounds. Three supplements of conjugated linoleic acids which differed inExpand

Effects of insulin and postruminal supply of protein on use of amino acids by the mammary gland for milk protein synthesis.
We examined the relationships between amino acid supply, net utilization of amino acid by the mammary gland, and milk protein yield, in investigations that utilized a hyperinsulinemic-euglycemicExpand
