Abstract

The objective of this study was to investigate how level of forage and oils in ruminant animals' diet affect selected strains of ruminal bacteria believed to be involved in biohydrogenation (BH). Four continuous culture fermenters were used in 4 × 4 Latin square design with a 2 × 2 factorial arrangement over four consecutive periods of 10 days each. The experimental diets used in this study were: high forage diet (700:300. g/kg (DM basis) forage to concentrate; HFC), high forage with oil supplement (HFO), high forage diet (300:700. g/kg (DM basis) forage to concentrate; LFC), and high forage with oil supplement (HFO). The oil supplement was a blend of fish oil (FO) and soybean oil (SBO) added at 10 and 20. g/kg DM, respectively. Acetate concentration was greater (P
