In this course, Dr. Tom Jenkins from Clemson University covers Fatty Acid basics with three videos: The Nomenclature and Analysis of Feed Lipids, Fat Feeding Strategies to Maximize Returns, and Rumen Transformation of Lipids.
In this course you will learn:
- Feed Lipids: Nomenclature and Analysis: This first video is focused on fatty acids as the most important lipid fraction in feed for animal health & production and learning the difference between the content and composition of fatty acids.
- Fat Feeding Strategies to Maximize Returns: Learn how to decide on the proper amount of fat to feed, decoding oversimplified fat feeding recommendations and avoiding rumen digestibility problems to maximize your returns from feeding fat.
- Rumen Transformation of Lipids: This segment covers the changes that rumen microbials have on lipids, the role of biohydrogenation as a key pathway to preserving rumen digestion, and the impact that secondary metabolites produced through rumen lipid metabolism have on production efficiency.
