Abstract Experiments were conducted to evaluate the effect of administration of an elite strain of anaerobic fungi ( Piromyces strain FNG5; isolated from the faeces of wild herbivore, blue bull) on nutrient digestion, ruminal fermentation characteristics, microbial populations, enzyme profile and N retention in buffaloes. In experiment 1, eight growing buffaloes with body weight range of 237–271 kg receiving wheat straw and concentrate mixture in equal proportions were randomly assigned to two… CONTINUE READING
