Two ruminally cannulated cows were fed a diet containing 65% alfalfa haylage and 35% concentrate every 12 h. During two collection periods, whole ruminal contents were sampled before feeding, when feed not eaten was removed (1 h after initiation of feeding) and 1, 2, 3, 4, 6, 8, 10 and 12 h after removal. At each sampling, fluid-associated microorganisms were obtained by straining whole ruminal contents through eight layers of cheesecloth. A portion of the particle-associated population was… CONTINUE READING
