Establishment of Bacteroides succinogenes and measurement of the main digestive parameters in the rumen of gnotoxenic lambs.

Four lambs (group I) received an inoculum orally, composed of 182 noncellulolytic bacterial strains (inoculum 1) previously isolated from the rumen of conventional young lambs. Two lambs… (More)
