Anim Feed Sci Tech ; Being natural, these substances are environment-friendly. Accepted March 13, In vitro methods are suitable for comparing degradation of cellulosic substrates and synthesis of products derived from fermentation, such as volatile fatty acids VFA. Thus, we concluded that measuring this type of stress by comparing different levels of plasma metabolites may not be the most appropriate method and that it may be necessary to use methods that compare behaviors e.

This result was similar to that found by Kannan et al.

Decreased Volaitles concentrations in rumen liquor can be attributed to reduced activities of ruminal microorganisms due to the antimicrobial effect of essence oils. Received November 6, Barley straw, ewe, grazing, local Spanish breed. Animals were provided with a TMR based on chopped barley straw short fiber; 5 mm mixed with concentrate, which was distributed mechanically and administered ad libitum.

The supernatant was used for ammonia analysis according to a modified procedure of Broderick and Kang However, rosemary and sage extracts were found to decrease acetate: The same proportion at 24 h significantly increased with Thymol 25 and Oregano 25 ppm supplementations for all feed groups.

Similar results have been obtained in previous work by Galipalli et al. In contrast, Pereira et al. Phytogenic additives to decrease in vitro ruminal methanogenesis.

Four hours after the first injection of oxytocin, the operation was repeated with the same dose of oxytocin, and the amount of milk obtained from this second milking was measured.


The effect of pre-slaughter stressors on physiological indicators and meat quality traits on Merino lambs. In the study of Busquet et al 253. Screening for the effects of natural plant extracts at different pH on in vitro rumen microbial fermentation of a high-concentrate diet for beef cattle. Although our study showed a NH 3 -N higher content in treatment groups fed with larger particle sizes whole and grazing strawAsadi et al. The total VFA concentration and individual ratios of VFAs were similar in the three treatments and did not appear to be influenced by particle size.

All plant extracts were extracted with distilated water. Can J Anim Sci ; The pH values of the rumen fluid, which may be related to the VFA concentrations, were determined with the aid of a pH meter. Acknowledgements The authors are grateful to Hohenheim University Germany for its financial and technical support. After gasification measurements, harmful extract doses and critical time periods were identified. Elevated plasma levels of cortisol Sevi et al.

Methods for dietary fibre, neutral detergent fibre and non-starch polysaccharides in relation to animal nutrition. In the present study, Syzygium ppm supplementation increased propionic acid production at 8 h for hay.

Efficacy of essence oil supplementation to feeds on volatile fatty acid production

The authors are grateful to Hohenheim University Germany for its financial and technical support. Concentrations of VFAs were analysed in pooled samples of each replicate, using a gas dumen GC 14B, Shimadzu, Japan equipped with a flame ionisation detector, and samples were treated with an Internal Standard volatiiles acid and formic acid 1: Ruminal variables in steers fed with Tifon 85 Cynodon spp hay with different particle sizes.

The Ojalada breed of sheep is reared primarily in the central and south-western zones of the region of Soria in North-Central Spain. Aciidos composition of this concentrate Table 1 and the proportion of straw varied according to the productive stage as follows: Brit Poultry Sci ; 41 5: For each extract, different doses were tested to determine harmful and usable doses.


One of the alternative to antibiotic feed supplements are plant extracts. Effect of treatment on ruminal parameters.

Once per month during the production cycle, coinciding with weight control, as well as once per week during the lactation period five weekscoinciding with the control of milk production, Miguel et al.

A total of 6 parallel analyses were performed for each sample. At these installations, work has been ongoing for 30 years on the characterization, conservation and genetic improvement of the native Ojalada breed, and a system involving three live births every two years per ewe has been employed.

In the second phase of the experiment, VFA levels were measured. Kafkas Univ J Fac Med ; 17 acidks The findings of the study indicate that moderate doses of plant extracts result in increased VFA levels in ruminants while higher doses demonstrate the opposite effect. The findings of these researchers are in agreement with the findings obtained in this study.

Effects of essence oils on VFA. J Nutr ; In this study, Oreganum vulgare, Thymus vulgarisZingiber officinaleSyszygium aromaticum rumfn oils were supplemented to TMR, concentrate and hay to explore their effects on the levels of volatile fatty acid VFA concentrations at 8 and 24 h in in vitro conditions. Lambs from volatilfs Ojalada breed are raised without having been separated by sex and are fed exclusively on mothers’ milk until five weeks.

Propionic acid production at 24 h increased with Zingiber ppm and Syzgium ppm supplementations rumej TMR and hay, and with Zingiber ppm supplementation for concentrate. These bacteria, however, do not improve DM degradation when co-cultured The descriptive statistics for the examined parameters were expressed in terms of average and standard errors.
