Effect of ruminal inoculation of Isotricha alone or a mixed B-type fauna in a defaunated rumen on the digestion of a hay-maize diet (70:30) in sheep



Effect of ruminal inoculation of Isotricha alone or a mixed B-type fauna in a defaunated rumen on the digestion of a hay-maize diet (70:30) in sheep



Reproduction, Nutrition, Development 35(1): 11-25



2 adult sheep, 75 kg liveweight and fitted with rumen cannulas were defaunated by the emptying method during period 1, inoculated with the genus Isotricha alone during period 2, and with a mixed ciliate population of Entodinium, Eudiplodinium and Epidinium during period 3. The wethers were given grass hay 840 g and pelleted maize grains 360 g in 8 meals per day, every 3 h. Defaunation was successful and without accidental contamination.
