Analysis of the rumen bacterial diversity of goats during shift from forage to concentrate diet.
TLDR
Three different culture-independent methods used in this study show that high proportion of concentrate in goat diet does not induce any serious disturbance of their rumen ecosystem and indicate the good adaptive response of caprine ruminal bacteria to incorporation of corn into the diet. Expand
Rumen development and blood metabolites of Criollo kids under two different rearing systems
TLDR
The alternative rearing system improves the physical and metabolic development of the rumen and promotes the transition of kids from pre-ruminant to ruminant and in dry periods with shortage of forage, this system should be used. Expand
Effect of the physiological state of Criollo goats on the botanical composition of their diet in NE Mendoza, Argentina
TLDR
Physiological state modi- fied nutrient requirements and affected diet selection in that pregnant and lactating goats selected forage species with high protein contents in this arid environment. Expand
Growth and economic performance of kid production under different rearing systems and slaughter ages in arid areas of Argentina
TLDR
It would be advisable to raise the kids naturally with goat milk and increase the age of slaugther, as long as consumers accept these older animals without decreasing the selling price of meat. Expand
Isolation of Pseudobutyrivibrio ruminis and Pseudobutyrivibrio xylanivorans from rumen of Creole goats fed native forage diet
TLDR
The identification of bacterial strains involved in the rumen fermentation helps to explain the ability of these animals to digest fiber plant cell wall contained in native forage species. Expand
Effect of the length of the suckling period and dietary energy intake in lactation on the duration of postpartum anestrus in Creole goats
TLDR
The effect of the length of the suckling period and the dietary energy level on the duration of postpartum anestrus in Creole goats was determined and there were no significant lengths of suckling x energy intake level interactions. Expand
Effect of the Rearing System on the Establishment of Different Functional Groups of Microorganism in the Rumen of Kid Goats / Uticaj Sistema Uzgoja Na Uspostavljanje Različitih Funkcionalnih Grupa
TLDR
The results demonstrate the rearing system does not affect the sequence and time in which the functional groups of microorganisms are established in the rumen, however, the alternativeRearing system with early intake of solid food allowed the establishment of greater amount of bacteria and protozoa.
