Milk and dairy products are important sources of biologically active lipid substances. Interest in the nutritional qualities of dairy fats is not recent. It is now well established that milk and dairy products contain many fatty acids, some of which, with specific and sought-after physiological effects, not found in any other food. Milk, however, is not a standard product. Its fatty acid composition is very variable. At the farm level, it can be modulated either through genetics or husbandry practices. Among them, diet is the quickest and most effective way and its effects are quickly reversible. The objective of this article is to present the results of a study on the link between the feeding dairy cow’s diets and the milk fatty acid profile. Two winter feeding diets were compared: A diet - maize forages as the main component of the feeding diet. B diet - maize forages and grass forage. The obtained results confirm the influence of feeding dairy cows diets in obtaining ideal milk in terms of lipid profile.
