Mechanistic elements for determining water kinetics and effects of pH on VFA production and cellulose hydrolysis were incorporated into a model of rumen digestion and metabolism. Elements necessary for water kinetics were estimates of salivary flow during eating, resting, and ruminating, time course and amount of drinking water, osmotic flux across the rumen wall based on changes in rumen fluid osmolality, and liquid turnover rate. Osmotic flux equations predicted a significant net absorption… CONTINUE READING
