Dietinduced milk fat depression in dairy cows results in increased trans-10, cis-12 CLA in milk fat and coordinate suppression of mRNA abundance for mammary enzyme involved in milk fat synthesis.
The purpose of the present study was to evaluate the response of supplementing with Se and/or vitamin E on milk fat depression and milk fatty acid concentration in cows fed high-UFA diets, and the effects of treatments on antioxidant status in blood were also assessed.
Milk fat depression is frequently seen in dairy cows fed oil supplements (AbuGhazaleh et al., 2002; Rego et al., 2005a,b; Shingfield et al., 2006; Holmes and AbuGhazaleh, 2007).
However, increasing sunflower oil supplementation in the diets tended to decrease milk fat, and, as Jenkins and Lundy (2001) stated, unsaturated oils could cause milk fat depression when fed to dairy cows.
