Colonization and establishment of the rumen microbiota – opportunities to influence productivity and methane emissions

Code: 9781786767912

Chapter synopsis: This chapter reviews current information in the establishment of the microbiota in the rumen and posterior intestinal tract in young ruminants, as well as its modulation for promoting health and favouring desirable phenotypes. The chapter also provides case studies of early-life strategies for both improving health and production and for reducing enteric methane emissions. The chapter concludes by providing potential areas for future research, and gives examples of resources to use for further information on the topic.
