Digestive Tract Microecology

Cow digestive tract

There are many types of microbes in the digestive tract, and they vary with factors such as animal species, individuals, and food properties. Generally, the microbes can be classified into bacteria, fungi, and protozoa. Under normal circumstances, they not only have a symbiotic relationship with the host, but also depend on and restrict each other to form a relatively stable microflora.

A large number of microbes are in the rumen of ruminants and the large intestine of monogastric herbivores that multiply and move, which play an important role in the digestion and utilization of nutrients in plant feeds. The digestion function of microbes is to decompose the food in the food by the enzymes they produce. In addition to decomposition, the digestive tract microbes also have a synthesis effect. For example, the microbes in the rumen of ruminants can synthesize amino acids and proteins using ammonia, and can also synthesize B-vitamins and vitamin K.
