Fig. 1.

Caudo-ventral sac of the rumen of experimental kids (12 weeks of age) showing the density of the rumen papillae per cm2 under stereo microscope (0.67×). A, rumen of kids with dam’s milk alone; B, rumen of kids fed milk + creep feed without roughage; C, rumen of kids fed milk + creep feed containing roughage.

Fig. 2.

Rumen papillae from ventral sacs, arrows show keratin layer of papillae in A, DM; B, CF and C, CFR.
The keratin layer of DM group is very thin, CF group was thick and compact and CFR group was thick and had vacuolated cells (× 20; bar = 500 µm).
