Lambs trained to drink liquid supplements containing various levels of sunflower oil showed increased incorporation of linoleic acid into the aortic phospholipids with associated decreases in the percentage of C18:3.omega.3, C20:3.omega.9, C20:5.omega.3 and the C22.omega.3 fatty acids, while there was no significant change in the percentage of C20:4.omega.6 fatty acid. The levels of cholesterol, total phospholipid and phospholipid fractions, did not vary significantly with increasing oil intake.
