AIMS To identify the most effective mixture of non-esterified lauric (C12) and myristic (C14) acid in suppressing ruminal methanogenesis, and to investigate their effects on the methanogenic population. METHODS AND RESULTS C12/C14 mixtures were incubated with rumen fluid using the Hohenheim gas test apparatus. Methane production and the numbers of Archaea declined with an increasing proportion of C12. With a 2 : 1 proportion of C12/C14, the maximum methane-suppressing effect (96%) was… CONTINUE READING
