Thank you for painting a more complete picture of how fats should be fed to dairy - both from an economical and nutritional standpoint. I would also like to add to the argument, that the quality of the fat will play a large role in the cascade of effects during and after lactation.

I. INTRODUCTIONHistorically, there has been a move from the use of a total Ca (tCa) to total P (tP) ratio system (NRC, 1950) to a tCa to inorganic P (iP) ratio (NRC, 1954), to the use of tCa to available P (aP) that appeared in the 1984 NRC. In 1950, the requirements were 1.0% tCa and 0.6% tP (1.66 tCa:tP) (NRC, 1950) and, in the 1954 NRC, the qualification was made giving importance to the availa ...
