Effect of feeding frequency on pH and volatile fatty acids in rumen of buffaloes



Effect of feeding frequency on pH and volatile fatty acids in rumen of buffaloes



Indian Journal of Animal Sciences 60(5): 600-602



Rumen-fistulated buffalo calves, 2-3 years old, were given concentrates (groundnut oilmeal, wheat bran, maize, barley, mineral mix) and chopped wheat straw 60:40, once daily at 08.00 h, or in 2 equal parts at 08.00 and 17.00 h, or 4 times daily at 3-h intervals. Rumen fluid was sampled before the morning feed and at 2-h intervals for 12 h, for estimation of pH and volatile fatty acids (VFA).
