January 30, 2020

Dr. Tom Jenkins from Clemson University gives us an audio summary on the latest fatty acid research to help us stay on top of latest developments.

What You Will Learn

  • Feeding omega-3 fatty acids reduces the n-6/n-3 fatty acids in plasma and follicular fluid in 7 weeks, which also was seen at 2 weeks.
  • Omega-3 fatty acid supplementation enhanced embryo quality at 7 weeks, which also was seen at 2 weeks.
  • A significant difference in lipid composition was seen between oocytes recovered from n-3 and n-6 treated cows.

The Point

n-3 supplementation enhances embryo quality in dairy cows.
