Ruminant animals are the most important source of meat and milk consumed by humans and, therefore, of tremendous significance in agriculture. The particular nature of ruminant digestion and the special role played by rumen microorganisms involves an extra layer of complexity compared with other mammals. Feeding ruminants is, at least in part, the process of feeding the complex community of microorganisms of all types that inhabit the rumen. The interplay between the members of the community and their host is not only of great intrinsic interest, but of vital importance if the world's ruminants are to be bred and managed to the best effects. "Protein Nutrition in Ruminants" aims to address these issues and present practical solutions.
