Effect of early-in-life rumen microbial inoculation on animal performance in goats. A) feed intake, B), rumen total VFA, C) animal growth and D) rumen butyrate molar proportion. Goat kids were inoculated (I) with fresh rumen fluid from adult goats adapted to forage-rich (RFF) or concentrate-rich diets (RFC), autoclaved rumen fluid (AUT) or absence of inoculation as control (CTL) and sampled at different times (T). In Figs. B and D, treatment means with different letters differ
