Abstract

Objective: The objectives were to assess the effects of purified lignin from wheat straw (sodium hydroxide dehydrated lignin; SHDL) on in vitro ruminal fermentation and on the growth performance of feedlot cattle. Methods: In vitro experiments were conducted by incubating a timothy-alfalfa (50:50)...

Abstract

We hypothesized that inoculating the rumen of beef cattle with rumen contents of bison and supplementing with exogenous fibrolytic enzymes (FE) would improve ruminal feed digestibility by enhancing microbiome activity in the rumen. The objectives of this study were to evaluate the effects of...

Abstract

Rate of barley starch digestion in the rumen is critical issue in high-grain fed beef cattle because it is associated with growth performance and health. The digestion rate of starch varies with variety, grain processing or starch content. The objectives of this study were to evaluate the effect of ...

Abstract

The protocol for the National Inventory of agricultural greenhouse gas emissions in The Netherlands includes a dynamic and mechanistic model of animal digestion and fermentation as an Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) Tier 3 approach to estimate enteric CH4 emission by dairy cows....

Abstract

In situ and in vitro experiments were conducted to evaluate the effect of forage conservation method on the chemical composition, ruminal degradation, and intestinal digestion of purple prairie clover (PPC), which was conserved as freeze-dried forage (FD), silage (SIL), or hay (Hay). In situ dry...

Abstract

The ability of ruminants to convert plant biomass unsuitable for human consumption into meat and milk is of great societal and agricultural importance. However, the efficiency of this process is largely dependent on the digestibility of plant cell walls. Supplementing ruminant diets with exogenous...

Abstract

Direct-fed microbials (DFM) have been employed in ruminant production for over 30 yr. Originally, DFM were used primarily in young ruminants to accelerate establishment of the intestinal microflora involved in feed digestion and to promote gut health. Further advancements led to more sophisticated...
