Markey et al. (2017) have just published a paper where they reflect that consumers are aware of the importance of milk fatty acid profile on their health, particularly if it is either more or less unsaturated. Their study evaluated the consumer acceptance of SFA-reduced, monounsaturated fatty acid–enriched (modified) milk, Cheddar cheese, and butter when compared with control and commerciall ...

Congrats for the article. As seen in it, dietary lipids are one of the most tools to reduce enteric CH4 emissions. This is possitive as those fatty acids that actively reduce CH4 (mainly C18:2 and C18:3) also improves meat and milk quality. After this, the point is to formulate for fatty acids (taking also into account their degree of protection) to avoid negative effects of free PUFAs (MFD).

Dear colleagues, Thanks for the interesting update. I will be giving a presentation on Sustainable Nutrition for Milk and Meat in Colombia, next 12nd of September in the "Foro Internacional Ganadero": http://www.expoagrofuturo.com/es/actividades/academico/foro-internacional-ganadero. I will discuss methane emissions from cattle and the role of fatty acids as abatement tool /strategy. In case ...

Dear Rudra, Good to hear your view. However, protected fats in fact help reducing the risk of rumen acidosis, and protect agains metabolic dissorders and even immunitary ones, as we nowadays know that ketone bodies (coming from NEB) negatively affect the immune system. Therefore, protected fats are not only tools to increase milk production, "squeezing" animals; but they are helpful nutritional ...

Dear Mr. Rudra, This will depend on the level of production to an important extent. I mean: higher levels of production means greater needs for energy. Then, limiting the inclusion of fats will reduce to reach the animals' genetic potential for milk production. Of course, fat sources also exist in common raw materials (oilseeds, etc.), but we are expose to the negative consequences on rumen micr ...

There is no doubt on the fact that calcium soaps protection is not 100%, but it is true that they are cost-efficient in comparison with other more "complex" ones. The mechanism is in theory good, but it is not possible to know the speed of enzymes release as it depends on diet composition, passage rate, etc. As a consequence, we could finally find that they are too much protected and/or released ...

If we take into account that cows with high genetic potential are more prone to show higher NEB and ketone bodies, it is always good (uner all situations) to rear them? Does ideal body condition score vary according how you manage fat mobilization? Think of using a strategy that combines (1) a prepartum antilipolitic strategy and (2) higher hepatic export of fat (choline?) Of course, in all this ...

Calcium soaps are the most proven and cost-efficient fat supplements for dairy cows. This is as a general recommendation. Of course different situations (stages of production etc.) require different strategies (products), and as it has been previously mentioned, we nowadays are increasing our knowledge on it. In fact, we formulate on the basis of fatty acids already in our company. Regarding the ...

  1. Introduction The livestock sector is established today as a key element in the food system, since it has to meet consumers’ increasing demands for animal products while complying with sustainable production principles (animal welfare, equity, food safety, healthiness, and environmental protection). All this, under a context of Climate Change that will strongly impact some areas, ...
