This paper describes an automated system that has been developed to measure the production of fermentation gas from ruminant livestock feeds inoculated with rumen ̄uid. The design of the apparatus and its method of use enables gas production to be determined from fresh, unprocessed plant material, as well as the more commonly used ground, particulate substrates, thus representing a closer simulation of forages consumed in vivo. The system consists of 48 140 ml bottles containing 100 ml… CONTINUE READING
