Fatty Acids 101 with Dr. Tom Jenkins, Clemson

  • Course level: Beginner
  • Duration 1h 03m 37s


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.
