Protect Her Embryos
Whether you are utilizing IVF or are breeding cows conventionally, your cows’ embryos are highly valuable as they hold the genetics for your future herd. The impact of nutrition on embryo development has been an important focus of recent research. EPA/DHA omega-3 is an essential nutrient for proper embryo development and for healthy immune function.
In fact, recent research underscores just how essential EPA/DHA is to embryos, with results showing significant improvements in embryo development rate in vitro, as well as improvements in embryo quality when supplemented in the ration.
Greater In Vitro Growth Rate
In this in vitro study, very low levels of DHA (.45 g) almost doubled the day 7 blastocyst rate. (Oseikria, 2016) *P<.01
Improved % Good Quality/Freezable Embryos
Cows fed EPA/DHA omega-3 had 29% more good quality embryos compared to cows fed an isoenergetic, iso-lipid control diet. (Freret, 2019) P<.05
