Experiments were conducted using mixed rumen bacterial cultures to determine which amino acids limited growth. Complete amino acid mixtures stimulated microbial growth alone and when added to casein. Amino acid subgroups did not stimulate growth alone or when added to casein or casein hydrolysates. Results were similar whether growth was limited by periodic addition of low amounts of carbohydrate or when higher amounts were added to batch cultures. Little growth occurred with ammonia as sole N… CONTINUE READING
