Effect of Rumensin and feed intake variation on ruminal pH in beef cattle






Journal of Jilin Agricultural University 21(4): 1-5

Effect of Rumensin and feed intake variation on ruminal pH in beef cattle

Six rumen-fistulated yearling steers were used in a 110-day study to evaluate the effect of rumensin and variation in feed intake on changes in rumen pH. Steers were adapted to a 92.5% concentrate finishing diet for 20 days and then subjected to 3 levels of feed intake: ad libitum, low feed intake (+or-1.0 kg daily) or high feed intake (+or-2.0 kg daily). Feed intake, rate of feed intake and rumen pH were monitored and recorded continuously throughout the trial.
