Ruminal synthesis and biohydrogenation of fatty acids in dairy cows were determined by sampling duodenal digesta through T-cannulas. Fatty acid digestibility in the total tract also was measured. Five diets (concentrate:alfalfa hay:alfalfa haylage:corn silage, 2:1:1:1, DM) in a 5 x 5 Latin square contained either no added fat; 3 or 6% added calcium soap; or 3 or 6% animal-vegetable blend fat. Seventy percent of dietary fatty acids were recovered at the duodenum, and 106 g/d were synthesized in… CONTINUE READING
