Jenkins Fat Checker

Wondering how much fat may be too much in your dairy diets? The Jenkins Fat Checker tool is intended to describe practical limits of rumen-active and total added fat that gives an acceptable milk response in situations where you are:

  1. Considering fat for the first time
  2. Changing sources of rumen-active fat, or
  3. The composition of your present fat source has changed dramatically.

QuickGuideToFattyAcids_thQuick Guide to Fatty Acids

Each fatty acid has specific roles in the dairy cow and the balance of these fatty acids plays a tremendous role in milk and milk fat production, reproduction and the immune status of the animal. This guide provides an overview of the basics on the main fatty acids in dairy cow diets and the roles that they play, as well as an easy reference of how these fatty acids flow from the rumen to the small intestine, and the impacts of biohydrogenation on actual fatty acids utilized by the cow.
