diversified rumen microbial ecosystem consisting of bacteria (1010–1011 cells/ml, representing more than 50 genera), ciliate protozoa (104–106/ml, from 25 genera), anaerobic fungi (103–105 zoospores/ml, representing five genera) and bacteriophages (108–109/ml) (Kamra, 2005). Without ruminal microorganisms, or when the ruminal ecosystem is disturbed, there can be cascade of detrimental effects on animal health and productivity. Small-scale farmers are increasingly relying on browse and on crop… CONTINUE READING
