Forage lipid concentration, fatty acid profile and lamb productivity

Forage lipid concentration, fatty acid profile and lamb productivity

Proceedings of the New Zealand Grassland Association 66: 251-256

Increasing the total lipid concentration and modifying the fatty acid profile in forage may increase energy intake and productivity of animals and improve the attributes of meat and milk for human health. To predict the outcome of modifying these traits in ryegrass, 3 groups of weaned lambs (n=15 per treatment) grazed ryegrass (4% total lipid) and received twice-daily oral doses of oil at 0, 28 or 56 ml/day.
