The effects of microfauna on some rumen and blood metabolites and weight gain of Akkaraman lambs

Doga, Turk Veterinerlik ve Hayvanclk Dergisi 13(3): 393-413
The effects of microfauna on some rumen and blood metabolites and weight gain of Akkaraman lambs
From 1.5 months old, Akkaraman lambs, faunated and defaunated, were fed on diets ad libitum containing chopped sainfoin hay and concentrates (ratio of digestible crude protein to starch 1:3.71). At 6 months old, defaunated lambs were refaunated with protozoal inoculum. Rumen pH of all lambs was highest before feeding, decreased by 6 h and increased again by 9 h after feeding. Protozoal count/ml and differential protozoal count percentages were estimated in 372 rumen fluid samples.
