Increasing the alpha-linolenic acid (LNA; 18:3 cis-9,cis-12,cis-15) content of milk fat might help promote consumers' health. The objective of this study was to determine the potential to alter the content of LNA in milk by duodenal infusion of a free fatty acid mixture rich in LNA. Four multiparous lactating Chinese Holstein cows fitted with duodenal cannulas were administered 2 treatments in a crossover design: an LNA-rich fatty acid infusion at varying concentrations (0, 40, 80, 120, and 160… CONTINUE READING
