ABSTRACT Five Angus x Simmental steers (average BW 259 kg) cannulated in the rumen, proximal duodenum, and terminal ileum were fed five diets in a 5 x 5 Latin square design. Experimental periods were 14 d in length, with 10 d of diet adaptation and 4 d of sample collection. The basal diet contained (percentage of diet DM) ammoniated corn cobs (50%), alfalfa hay (22%), cornstarch grits (13%), corn (6.7%), cane molasses (5%), and urea (1.25%). Three canola seed-containing diets and a diet containing Ca salts of long-chain fatty acids (Ca-LCFA) were formulated by replacing cornstarch grits from the basal diet with the test feedstuffs. Whole canola seed untreated, crushed, or treated with a caustic alkaline solution and an oxidant were included at 10% of diet DM. The Ca-LCFA diet contained (percentage of diet DM) canola meal (5%) and Megalac (5%). Diets containing untreated, crushed, and treated canola seed and Ca-LCFA contained, on average, 5.6% more total fatty acids than the basal diet. Steers were fed 5.3 kg DM/d (2.05% of initial BW) in 12 equal portions (every 2 h). Ruminal fermentation characteristics and digestibilities of OM, GE, N, NDF, and ADF were unaffected (P > .05) by diet. Biohydrogenation of total 18-carbon unsaturated fatty acids was greater (P < .05) for steers fed the crushed canola seed-containing diet (72.0%) than for steers fed the untreated (27.9%) and treated (38.6%) canola seed-containing diets. Digestibility of total 18-carbon fatty acids in the small intestine was greater for steers fed the crushed canola seed (58.9% of duodenal flow) rather than the untreated canola seed (28.4% of duodenal flow) and intermediate for steers fed the treated canola seed (47.0% of duodenal flow). Chemical treatment of whole canola seed may be a viable method for the postruminal delivery of intestinally available unsaturated fatty acids to ruminants.

    ABSTRACT: This study compared the nutritional value of canola (B. napa) and mustard (B. hirta) press cakes obtained from the biodiesel industry as ingredients for use in diets fed to broiler chickens. A total of 210, one-day old, male broiler chicks were randomly assigned to one of seven dietary treatments. The control diet was based on wheat and soybean meal and contained 15% canola meal. For the experimental diets, 5, 10 or 15% of the canola meal was replaced with an equal amount of either canola or mustard biodiesel press cake. Dry matter and neutral detergent fiber digestibility were significantly higher for birds fed diets containing either canola or mustard biodiesel press cake compared with canola meal. Dry matter and neutral detergent fiber digestibility of the canola biodiesel press cakes was higher than the mustard biodiesel press cakes. Ether extract digestibility and nitrogen retention were significantly higher for birds fed canola biodiesel press cake compared with canola meal and mustard biodiesel press cake. Body weight gain and feed intake did not differ between birds fed canola or mustard biodiesel press cake and canola meal. In addition, there was no significant difference in body weight gain or feed intake between birds fed diets containing canola or mustard biodiesel press cake. Feed conversion was significantly improved for birds fed either canola or mustard biodiesel press cake compared with canola meal. Mortality was unaffected by treatment. Since the performance of broilers fed canola biodiesel press cakes was essentially the same as that of broilers fed canola meal, it is difficult to justify a premium to be paid for canola biodiesel press cake over that paid for canola meal. In addition, there was no difference in the performance of broilers fed biodiesel press cake obtained from canola or mustard seed. As mustard seeds are generally available at a lower price than canola seed, there may be some incentive to use mustard rather than canola seed for producing biodiesel press cake for use in poultry production.

    ABSTRACT: The effects of different rumen protected forms, oleamide, Ca oleate, of dietary oleic acid on the carcass quality and fatty acid composition in intramuscular and subcutaneous fat tissues of Hanwoo steer were examined. Sixty, 25 month old Hanwoo steers divided into three groups were fed no supplement (Control), 2% of oleamide (Oleamide) or Ca-oleate (Ca-Oleate) in their diet for 45 or 90 days. Disappearance rates of oleic acid supplements in digestive tracts (Rumen bypass, abomasal and intestinal disappearance rate) were 48.5, 68.4 for oleamide and Ca oleate, respectively. Both oleic acid supplements affected feed intake, growth rate, cold carcass weight and carcass fatness. Live weight gain, carcass weight, backfat thickness and marbling score were higher in the oleic acid supplemented steers compared with those from the control. Oleic acid supplements increased marbling score and ether extract in Hanwoo steer m. logissi thoracicmus. Rumen protected oleic acid increased not only the level of oleic acid but also polyunsaturated fatty acids in intramuscular and subcutaneous fat tissue. Total saturated fatty acid contents in both fat tissues were decreased whereas total unsaturated fatty acid content was increased compared with those from control. Linoleic acid, linolenic acid and polyunsaturated fatty acid contents were significantly higher in Ca oleate than any other steers. Lipid metabolites in blood were increased in rumen protected oleic acid treatments. HDL content in blood was increased in Ca-oleate supplemented steers whereas LDL was decreased compared with control. The changes of fatty acid compositions in the rumen protected oleic acid supplemented steers suggest that the oleic acid and unsaturated fatty acid were protected from rumen biohydrogenation and can be deposited in the fat tissues.

    ABSTRACT: A sub-model developed within the structure of the Cornell–Penn–Miner Dairy System (CPM-Dairy) predicts ruminal metabolism and intestinal absorption of fat in dairy cows. Data from 36 dietary treatments in eight published experiments that reported intakes and flows (g per day) of long chain fatty acids (LCFA) to the duodenum and feces were used to estimate rate constants and develop equations in the model. Similar data on 36 diets from another eight published papers were used to validate the model. Fat from each feed ingredient is specified in terms of its content of the major lipid components: glycerol, pigment and 10 LCFA (C12:0, C14:0, C16:0, C16:1, C18:0, C18:1c, C18:1t, C18:2, C18:3 and ‘COther’). Dietary fat is assumed to exist mainly in the form of triglycerides. In the rumen, fat is either lipolysed (defined as enzymatic cleavage of ester linkages and dissociation of salts of fatty acids) or escapes the rumen to the small intestine in the non-lipolysed form. Estimated rates of lipolysis are presented for fats from 27 different feeds. The lipolysis rates for fat from corn silage, alfalfa silage, ground corn, alfalfa hay, ground-roasted soybeans, hydrogenated tallow and calcium salts of palm fatty acid distillate (Ca-PFAD) were 500, 500, 309, 65, 35, 18 and 6.3%/h, respectively. Ca-PFAD was the only ingredient that showed appreciable protection against lipolysis. Lipolysed LCFA undergo biohydrogenation in a stepwise process: C18:3→C18:2→C18:1t→C18:0; C18:1c→C18:0; C16:1→C16:0. At each step, the specific LCFA either undergoes biohydrogenation or passes out of the rumen. The estimated mean biohydrogenation rates for C16:1, C18:1c, C18:1t, C18:2 and C18:3 were 39.3, 27.4, 22.8, 87.6 and 244%/h, respectively. In addition, within the rumen, small amounts of C16:0, C16:1, C18:0 and COther LCFA are produced de novo from dietary carbohydrate. Specific intestinal digestion coefficients are used to describe absorption of each of the 10 major LCFA in both the lipolysed and non-lipolysed forms. Digestion coefficients for most LCFA were generally in the range 0.7–0.9. For total LCFA and for the majority of individual LCFA, the model showed good concordance between measured and predicted duodenal flows and also for measured and predicted intestinal absorption. The quantity of specific LCFA absorbed from the intestines can influence milk fat percentage and fertility. This model allows nutritionists to more accurately formulate dairy cattle rations in terms of fat, and to examine productivity in terms of individual LCFA.
