Two in vitro experiments were carried out with the Hohenheim gas test (HGT) apparatus in order to investigate dose-dependent effects and interactions of non-esterified lauric acid (C(12)) and myristic acid (C(14)) given either individually or in mixture on ruminal methanogens and methanogenesis. Special emphasis was also put on the relationship between effects on methane formation and methanogenic counts. The in vitro incubations were conducted in 10mL ruminal fluid and 20mL buffer solution and… CONTINUE READING
