These results were published in the form of a graph, but it is questionable whether in fact a cow on a stable diet can increase its milk-fat output by some 500 g overnight and then revert to normal. Case D. In an experiment with a long-term artificial rumen consisting of two identical fermentation vessels, the control period of about 7 days was followed by a 2-week treatment period, when the basal diet was supplemented with high-protein feed, and then by another, shorter, control period. There was little or n o difference between the output of end products in the initial and final control periods in the same vessel and between the values in the two vessels.

1980; Leng and Nolan, 1982). These models are becoming progressively more and more complicated and a nine-pool lag model of Mazanov and Nolan (1976) is reproduced in Fig. 7. In this model, four of the nine pools are in the rumen; these are the input, ammonia, amino acid and microbial pools or compartments. It should be noted, however, that the compartments considered in this model are quite different from the compartments discussed in Chapter 5. 1 J 3 55 150 mm FIG. 7. 2 gN/d.
