|Title:||The effects of monensin on the pool size and turnover rate of protozoa in the rumen of sheep||Contributor(s):||Leng, Ronald (author); Nolan, John V (author) ; Cumming, G (author); Edwards, S R (author); Graham, C A (author)||Publication Date:||1984||DOI:||10.1017/S0021859600042155||Handle Link:||https://hdl.handle.net/1959.11/23342||Abstract:||The effects of including monensin in the diet on the dynamics of protozoa in the rumen of sheep were investigated using injections of protozoa labelled with 14C-choline. The half time of rumen fluid was higher in sheep receiving monensin but neither the pool size nor the composition of protozoa species (mainly smaller entodiniomorph ciliates) was significantly affected. More protozoa passed out of the rumen as liquid outflow rate increased and there was a tendency for the apparent production rate of protozoa to be higher with the resulting increase in washout of protozoa.||Publication Type:||Journal Article||Source of Publication:||The Journal of Agricultural Science, 102(3), p. 609-613||Publisher:||Cambridge University Press||Place of Publication:||United Kingdom||ISSN:||1469-5146
