1 Dietary Fat Supplements and Body Condition: Does Fatty Acid Profile Matter? James K. Drackley, Professor of Animal Sciences

2 Does Fatty Acid Profile Matter? How does the balance of the major energy-related longchain fatty acids (LCFA) in dairy cows affect body condition and milk fat, as well as milk production? Palmitic acid (C16:0) Stearic acid (C18:0) Oleic acid (C18:1 cis 9) These LCFA are provided by normal dietary ingredients as well as fat supplements.

3 Absorption of Dietary Fatty Acids: Small Intestine Fatty acids (mostly saturated) emulsified by bile salts; micelles formed with lysolecithin. Fatty acids absorbed into intestinal cells; converted to triglycerides (TG) and packaged into TG-rich lipoproteins (TGLP), similar to very-low-density lipoproteins (VLDL). TGLP enter lymph and provide dietary fatty acids to heart, muscle, adipose, and mammary. Dietary fats bypass liver (mostly).

4 Metabolic Uses of Dietary LCFA Oxidation (to CO2 or ketone bodies) for energy Deposition in body fat (adipose TG) or intermediate TG pools (liver, muscle) Secretion in milk fat Metabolic fate depends on tissue and physiological state

7 Metabolic Uses of Dietary LCFA: Summary In positive energy balance: Oxidation (to CO2 or ketone bodies) for energy Deposition in body fat (adipose TG) or intermediate TG pools (liver, muscle) Secretion in milk fat In negative energy balance: Oxidation (to CO2 or ketone bodies) for energy Secretion in milk fat

8 Oxidation of LCFA (from diet-derived TG or NEFA) Oxidation (to CO2 or ketone bodies) for energy Direct oxidation of LCFA supplies only 6 to 12% of cow s energy 600-kg cow, 30 kg/d milk: g/d at energy balance g/d in negative energy balance Less oxidation of LCFA for energy in cows than nonruminants Palmquist, 1994

9 Source of Milk Fatty Acids De novo synthesis in mammary gland C4 to C14 plus ~50% of C16 Acetate main precursor B-hydroxybutyrate (BHBA) as primer Uptake of preformed fatty acids ~50% of C16 and all C18 and greater Absorbed from digestive tract, or Mobilized from body fat

13 Mammary and Adipose Metabolism of Stearic Acid C18:0 is taken up and extensively desaturated to oleic acid by mammary cells. Adipose tissue synthesizes only C16:0, then elongates to C18:0 and desaturates to oleic acid.

16 Differences in Absorbed vs. Adipose and Milk Fat FA Blood TG generally reflect FA profile of duodenal FA absorbed Blood TG higher in C18:0 than adipose or milk fat Adipose TG higher in C18:1 than milk fat Increasing C16:C18 from blood < adipose < milk fat

Warntjes et al., 2008, Anim. Feed Sci., Tech. 140:241

26 Implications High palmitic acid supplements can modestly increase milk fat content and output. C16:0 seems to be transferred to milk fat with greater efficiency. By default, however, this means less fatty acids available for other functions in cow (oxidation for energy, restoration of body reserves)

27 Using Fatty Acid Balance to Evaluate Changes in Lipid Metabolism Over a Lactation Cycle

28 Using Fatty Acid Balance to Evaluate Changes in Lipid Metabolism Over a Lactation Cycle FAB = Fatty acid intake minus fatty acids secreted in milk fat May reflect differences in body fat mobilization Consider total C16 and total C18 fatty acids to negate effects of biohydrogenation of unsaturated FA

29 Data Utilized Individual cow data for complete lactation from Drackley et al. (1998); subsequent analysis by Gursoy (2004) Cows fed control diet or diet supplemented with fat wk 4 through 25: 10% whole raw soybeans + 2.5% (DM) liquid fat wk 26 through 43: no soybeans, 2.25% liquid fat

30 Data Utilized Milk fatty acids determined at wk 3 (before dietary treatments started), and wk 7, 15, 23, 31, and 39 Intake and production data for same weeks utilized Balances calculated as digestible fatty acid intake minus milk fatty acid output Drackley, 2013, unpublished

31 Assumptions Milk C16 arises from 50% de novo synthesis and 50% from blood lipids Digestibility of fat constant across lactation: 72% for control diet 71% for added fat diet Dietary fat highly biohydrogenated (verified in Christensen et al., 1998) Drackley, 2013, unpublished

32 DMI Was Not Affected by Fat Supplementation DMI (kg) Weeks relative to calving Control Fat Drackley, 2013, unpublished

33 Total Fatty Acid Intake was Increased by Fat Supplementation Total fatty acid intake (g/d) Diet, P < Diet x week, P < Weeks relative to calving Control Fat Drackley, 2013, unpublished

34 Milk Yield Was Not Affected by Fat Supplementation Milk (kg) Control Fat 0 Diet x week, P = Weeks relative to calving Drackley, 2013, unpublished

35 Cow BW Was Greater for Fat-Supplemented Group 700 BW (kg) Control Fat 500 Diet, P = Weeks relative to calving Drackley, 2013, unpublished

36 Dietary Fat Supplementation Tended to Increase Milk Fat Yield at Peak Production Milk fat (kg) Diet x week, P = Weeks relative to calving Control Fat Drackley, 2013, unpublished

37 Dietary Fat Supplementation and Milk Fat Content Milk fat (%) Control Fat 0 Diet x week, P = Weeks relative to calving Drackley, 2013, unpublished

38 Despite Lower C16 Intake, Total C16 Fatty Acid Yield in Milk was Greater for Control Cows Milk C16 (g/d) Diet, P = Weeks relative to calving Control Fat Drackley, 2013, unpublished

39 Total C18 Fatty Acid Yield in Milk Tended to be Increased by Fat Supplementation Milk C18 (g/d) Diet x week, P = Weeks relative to calving Control Fat Drackley, 2013, unpublished

40 Fat Supplementation Increased C16 Balance C16 balance (g/d) Diet, P < Diet x week, P < Weeks relative to calving Control Fat Drackley, 2013, unpublished

41 Fat Supplementation Increased C18 Balance C18 balance (g/d) Diet, P < Diet x week, P < Weeks relative to calving Control Fat Drackley, 2013, unpublished

42 Discussion Are control cows really negative throughout lactation? Absolute numbers are subject to errors of assumptions. Regardless, fat supplementation improved apparent fatty acid balances. Implies less mobilization/more storage of body fat (C18) or spared energy (C16). These data were obtained for cows with a normal ratio of absorbed C16:C18 fatty acids, which may be different than when pure fatty acid supplements are fed.

43 Implications In presence of normal duodenal fatty acid profile, milk C16 was not increased by dietary C16 in a mixed supplement; rather, C16 synthesis was inhibited. A balanced fat supplement may provide more benefit for energy and BCS than pure C16.

44 Take-Home Messages Lipid metabolism is a dynamic process across life cycle and lactation cycle. C16:0 in milk is a pivot point for mammary fat synthesis; a supplemental fat providing a normal profile of C16:C18 FA decreases de novo synthesis.

45 Take-Home Messages Supplemental C18 fatty acids increase output in milk and improve body C18 balance. High palmitic acid (C16:0) supplements may increase milk fat content and yield, at least in cows in positive energy balance and lower yielding. Selection of fat supplements should take into account the stage of lactation and differing metabolism of C16 vs. C18 FA.
