The rumen microbial population constantly changes depending on the feed ingested by the ruminant host. In addition, the rumen itself is a dynamic organ which responds to changes in the composition and total output of volatile fatty acids produced by the rumen microbes. These rumen changes are anatomical, physiological and biochemical. Management of the transition from pasture to concentrate feeds to avoid the development of ruminal acidosis requires matching of volatile fatty acid output from microbial fermentation to the absorptive capacity of the rumen
