Essential oil: nutritional implications in ruminant livestock

Essential oil: nutritional implications in ruminant livestock

Livestock International 10(6): 20-23

This paper presents the results of several studies on the nutritional implications of essential oils in ruminants. The effects of essential oils on rumen fermentation, rumen microbial ecology, nutrient utilization and microbial protein supply and growth performance are discussed.
