Protein metabolism in the rumen is the result of metabolic activity of ruminal microorganisms. The structure of the protein is a key factor in determining its susceptibility to microbial proteases and, thus, its degradability. Ruminal protein degradation is affected by pH and the predominant species of microbial population. Ruminal proteolytic activity decreases as pH decreases with high-forage dairy cattle-type rations, but not in high-concentrate beef-type rations. Accumulation of amino acid… CONTINUE READING
