The feeding of ruminants on rumen-protected fats increases the energy concentration of the diet, influences the fatty acid profile of the meat and milk, and the milk production is constantly augmented. This technology is frequently used in dairy cattle industry. The fat supplementation - if it is rich in polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFA) - has a great impact on metabolism, reproductive tract and fertility of the animals. In the first part of these series the authors, beside presenting some of the unique aspect of fat digestion in ruminants, discuss the effect of fat supplementation on ovarian function, fertility and pregnancy.
