Mammalian milk fat concentration and composition are variable and responsive to nutritional factors. First described over one and a half centuries ago, diet-induced milk fat depression (MFD) is characterized by a decrease in milk fat yield of up to 50% with no change in milk yield or yield of other milk components. MFD is classically observed in ruminants fed highly fermentable diets or diets that contain plant or fish oil supplements. Dietary factors that cause MFD are known to alter ruminal… CONTINUE READING
