CABI Book Chapter Info
Cover for Immunization and tannins in livestock enteric methane amelioration.

The complexity of the rumen microbial ecosystem supports the efficient conversion of various carbohydrates to volatile fatty acids for fulfilling host energy requirement via stepwise disposal of hydrogen (H2) through the reduction of carbon dioxide (CO2) to methane (CH4). Although, this mechanism...

Cover for Enteric methane emission: status, mitigation and future challenges - an Indian perspective.

1% per annum. To stabilize this greenhouse gas in the atmosphere, global CH4 production needs to be reduced by 10-20%. Ruminants fed on low-quality feed/fodder produce over 75% of the CH4 generated by ruminants worldwide. Strategic supplementation to improve digestive efficiency in these animals...

Cover for Acetogenesis as an alternative to methanogenesis in the rumen.

Bacteria capable of producing acetate from H2 and CO2 using the acetyl-CoA pathway (4H2+2CO2 → CH3COOH+2H2O) are known as acetogens. They have been found in a variety of anaerobic ecosystems, including sediments, wastewater treatment systems, soils and animal gut systems. In recent years, acetogens ...

Cover for Advantages of a dynamical approach to rumen function to help to resolve environmental issues.

Simulation studies demonstrated the difference between current practice (static representation) and a dynamic representation of rumen function. Where current feed evaluation indicated absent or linear responses to changes in dry matter intake (DMI) and exchange of grass and maize silage, simulated...
