Extract

Dietary fatty acids have been shown to affect the activity of the immune system in a variety of species through eicosanoid dependent or independent mechanisms (Miles 1998, Calder 2001). MLN and spleen are lymphoid tissues which play a key role in the immune function. Changing the fatty acid composition of these tissues could change the profile of eicosanoid produced by immune cells in these tissues and this could alter the immune response. This study was carried out to establish the extent to which different oil supplements could change the fatty acid composition of MLN and spleen in milk fed calves.
