Abstract

We have found that rumen bacteria contain endotoxins that are released into rumen fluid. Also rumen fluid from grain-fed cattle contains considerably more free endotoxin than rumen fluid from hay-fed cattle. Injecting cattle with rumen bacterial endotoxins may be involved with such diseases associated with high-grain feeding as the sudden death syndrome.
