• Abstract

    Fatty acids (FA) have a variety of functions in animal bodies. They can be used as metabolic biomarkers, including in pathological conditions. Heat stress (HS) is accompanied by a drop in productivity in dairy cows, resulting from a negative energy balance (NEB), impaired biochemical processes in the body and suppressed immune system. The paper describes the role of individual FAs, the changes in content and ratio of which in serum and milk can be used to assess the physiological state or to predict HS in dairy cows. The purpose of the review has been to show the prospects in the study of the fatty acid composition of biological fluids (blood and milk) to assess the clinical status of dairy cows under HS and the consequences of the possible impact of heat on dairy product quality. Dietary strategies to correct the body's clinical status through dietary FAs have also been mentioned in this literature review.
