The composition of polyunsaturated fatty acids in mare's blood and foal's blood plasma at birth and the first days after parturition


Pferdeheilkunde 12(3): 223-226
The composition of polyunsaturated fatty acids in mare's blood and foal's blood plasma at birth and the first days after parturition
Eight mares and their foals were included in the study. Samples of blood plasma and mare milk were obtained before the first milk intake (day 0) and on day 1, 2 and 10 after parturition. The fatty acid composition of the total lipid fraction of plasma and milk was analysed by gas chromatography. Immediately after birth the concentration of linoleic acid (18:2n:6; LA) of foal blood plasma was very low compared to mare blood plasma.
