The purpose of this study was to determine whether the continuous intraruminal infusion of calculated physiological concentrations of volatile fatty acids (VFA) stimulated the metabolic development of the neonatal rumen. Eight 1-wk-old lambs were assigned to one of three treatments: saline infusion (three lambs), VFA infusion (three lambs), or no infusion (two lambs). Rumen catheters were surgically implanted into lambs in the infusion groups. The amount of VFA infused, beginning at 2 wk of age… CONTINUE READING
