Five Holstein cows were utilized in a Latin square design to determine the effects of postruminal profile of fatty acids on DMI, milk yield and composition, nutrient digestibilities, and metabolites in blood. Treatments were abomasal infusions of 1) control, 169 to 180 g/d of meat solubles; 2) control plus 450 g/d of mostly saturated fatty acids; 3) canola fatty acids; 4) soybean fatty acids; or 5) sunflower fatty acids. Infusion of fatty acids decreased intakes of DM, CP, and gross energy… CONTINUE READING
