Tom Jenkins, Professor Department of Animal & Veterinary Sciences Rumen Transformations of Lipid
Review of Dietary Lipid Fatty acids are most important lipid fraction. Majority of fatty acids are bound to glycerol as simple or compound lipids. Majority of fatty acids are unsaturated.
Rumen Transformations of Lipid Learning Objectives What happens to dietary lipid as it passes from the diet to the intestines and is metabolized by rumen microorganisms? What are the intermediates and end products that accumulate in the rumen from lipid metabolism? How does lipid transformations in the rumen affect animal performance?
Rumen Transformations of Lipid Compounds Extracted in Fat Test? Biohydrogenation Compound Simple Lipolysis MUFA PUFA Microbial Lipid SynthesisVFA
Rumen Transformations of Lipid How Does Dietary Lipid Change as it Passes Through the Rumen? 47.9 lb. DMI 60% Forage (mainly corn silage, 5 lbs. alfalfa hay) From CPM for Dairy v.3.0.8

Rumen Transformations of Lipid Impact of Rumen Lipid Metabolism Affects human health Meat and milk higher in saturated fat Bioactive metabolites Anti-carcinogenic Anti-atherogenic Enhance immune system
Rumen Transformations of Lipid Impact of Rumen Lipid Metabolism Affects animal performance Supply of essential fatty acids– reproduction Fatty acid antimicrobial effects– production Bioactive metabolites Milk fat depression
