Dried rumen microblota were isolated from fistulated steers. Proximate analyses were conducted and the amino acid composition and B-vitamin content were determined. Protein quality tests were carried out using the Bender-Miller method.
The data obtained from the investigation indicated that the protein quality of dried rumen microbiota is comparable with that of dried defatted egg, dried milk, fish meal and meat meal, but it is better than that of a soy protein and wheat gluten. No amino acid deficiency appeared in the feeding trials even though the amino acid composition showed that the dried rumen microbiota might be deficient in sulfur-containing amino acids.
