Soon, you could be able to increase the healthiness of your dairy’s milk by making a few changes to your feeding program. Researchers from the University of California–Davis have developed a feed supplement that significantly enhances the content of unsaturated fatty acids in cows’ milk over saturated fatty acids. And that’s great news because of the potential implications for decreasing cardiovascular disease and combating cholesterol concerns that accompany high levels of saturated fats in foods.

The patent-pending feed technology is based on naturally occurring proteins. Researchers noted dramatic results in milk within three days of introducing the feed supplement to cows, and think it might also have similar positive effects on meat production.
