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


, : 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

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.
