Abstract

The attachment of 14C-choline-labelled mixed rumen protozoa to barley straw in vitro was not significantly affected when bacteria prepared from rumen fluid were added to the incubation mixture. There was similarly little effect on protozoal attachment when the straw had already been colonized by a bacterial population for 24 h. In contrast, it was deduced from measurements of enzyme activities associated with straw that bacterial attachment was reduced if protozoa were present. Bacteria that had colonized the straw for 25 h beforehand were less susceptible to predation by protozoa.
