Methane mitigation in ruminants: from microbe to the farm scale.
Decreasing enteric methane (CH4) emissions from ruminants without altering animal production is desirable both as a strategy to reduce global greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and as a means ofExpand

Use of Exogenous Fibrolytic Enzymes to Improve Feed Utilization by Ruminants
Research has demonstrated that supplementing dairy cow and feedlot cattle diets with fiberdegrading enzymes has significant potential to improve feed utilization and animal performance. Ruminant feedExpand

Microbial ecosystem and methanogenesis in ruminants.
Ruminant production is under increased public scrutiny in terms of the importance of cattle and other ruminants as major producers of the greenhouse gas methane. Methanogenesis is performed byExpand

Effects of bacterial direct-fed microbials on ruminal fermentation, blood variables, and the microbial populations of feedlot cattle.
A study was conducted to determine whether bacterial direct-fed microbials (DFM) could be used to minimize the risk of acidosis in feedlot cattle receiving high concentrate diets. Six ruminallyExpand

Effects of bacterial direct-fed microbials and yeast on site and extent of digestion, blood chemistry, and subclinical ruminal acidosis in feedlot cattle.
Two studies were conducted to determine whether a bacterial direct-fed microbial (DFM) alone or with yeast could minimize the risk of acidosis and improve feed utilization in feedlot cattle receivingExpand

Comparison of methane production between C3 and C4 grasses and legumes
Abstract A meta-analysis was conducted to compare effects of C4 and C3 grasses as well as warm and cold climate legumes on CH 4 production of ruminants. For this purpose, a database was built usingExpand

Dose–response effects of essential oils on in vitro fermentation activity of the rumen microbial population
Abstract Numerous bioactive compounds in plant-derived products are secondary toxic metabolites produced by plants as a mechanism of defence against herbivores and invading microbes. Among them,Expand

Effects of an exogenous enzyme preparation on microbial protein synthesis, enzyme activity and attachment to feed in the Rumen Simulation Technique (Rusitec)
The effects of an exogenous enzyme preparation, the application method and feed type on ruminal fermentation and microbial protein synthesis were investigated using the rumen simulation techniqueExpand

Screening of exogenous enzymes for ruminant diets: relationship between biochemical characteristics and in vitro ruminal degradation.
With the objective of developing a rational approach for the selection of feed enzymes for ruminants, 22 commercial enzyme products were examined in terms of protein concentration, enzymic activitiesExpand
