Abstract
The fermentation in the cecum and large intestine of ruminants are negligible compared with that in the rumen. In small ruminants the rate per unit contents is faster than in large ones due to faster turnover. The cellulolytic bacteria of ruminants are similar but differ in nutritional requirement.
