Study TypeOther
Abstract The effects of the anti-methanogenic compound, chloroform, on rumen fermentation, microbial ecology and H2 /CH4 production were investigated in vivo. Eight rumen fistulated Brahman steers were fed a roughage hay diet (Rhode grass hay) or roughage hay:concentrate diet (60:40) with increasing levels ( .. [more]
