Two sheep were reared together and then kept on a standard diet over a period of 9 months. The rumen of one sheep contained a mixed population of ciliate protozoal species ; the other was initially unfaunated, then faunated with Entodinium caudatum and then with Entodinium and Polyplastron multivesiculatum. For each sheep diurnal and day-to-day variations in total concentration, and concentration of particular types, of bacteria, in viable counts of bacteria on non-selective and differential… CONTINUE READING
