The objective of this study was to examine the effect of ruminal pulse dose of free linoleic acid (LA) and free docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) on microbial populations in the rumen, duodenal fatty acid (FA) flow, milk composition, and milk FA profiles of Chinese Holstein dairy cows. Four rumen- and duodenal-fistulated Chinese Holstein cows in mid lactation (138.5 ± 10d in milk) were randomly assigned to 3 treatment groups and 1 control group in a 4 × 4 Latin square design over 4 periods (3 wk per… CONTINUE READING
