Cereal-rich diets used in ruminant intensive production can affect the physiology of the rumen wall but little is known about the changes induced to the epimural bacterial community. Dynamics in epimural bacteria was monitored by PCR-DGGE on four wethers fed forage for 20 weeks (constant diet) and on four wethers fed successively forage, a high concentrate diet (65% wheat) and forage for 4, 8 and 8 weeks, respectively (variable diet group). In the constant diet group, no changes were observed… CONTINUE READING
