Dairy Fats

Ruminant fats are fed both to increase the energy density of the diet and provide building blocks for butterfat and body condition.

The amount included in the diet is carefully controlled as too much can cause problems with fatty liver and acetonaemia, while too little can limit production and fertility. These products contain different combinations of saturated, unsaturated and polyunsaturated fatty acids (FAs).
