Ensure Herd Success with Omega-3s

Dairy producers are turning to the omega-3 feed ingredient called linPRO-R as a strategy to optimize the health and performance of their cattle herd. LinPRO-R feed ingredient is gaining attention for its associated omega-3 benefits on animal health and reproductive performance.

Dr. Troy L. Ott, Professor of Reproductive Physiology at Penn State University, offered this comment on their current research with linPRO-R: “ongoing research at Penn State supports the hypothesis that feeding a diet enriched in omega-3 fatty acids (linPRO-R) from calving to 21 days after calving alters immune cell function in transition dairy cows”. Furthermore, commercial application has shown an improvement in dairy cow conception rates as high as 20% in some herds when linPRO-R was included in the diet.
