REGINA, SK., CANADA – O&T Farms Ltd. recently collaborated with researchers from the University of Saskatchewan on a feeding trial to determine amino acid digestibility coefficients and apparent metabolizable energy values (AME) of linPRO in laying hens.
linPRO-R Feeding Strategies to Optimize Healthful Fats in Beef Products
Advances in nutritional sciences have allowed for a better understanding of how individual fatty acids affect human health. This knowledge has inspired Animal Scientists to focus on improving the fatty acid profile of meat by adjusting animal diets. The Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada Lacombe Research and Development Centre is contributing to progress in this area through their innovative beef research program, and a current focus is on developing linPRO-R feeding strategies to optimize levels of healthful fatty acids in beef.
Animal Scientists from the University of Saskatchewan have found that supplementing a dairy cow’s diet with linPRO-R products is an effective strategy for increasing the concentration of healthy fats in bovine milk.
