Ruminal fluid pH variation with time after feeding for steers fed twice daily and consuming CONTROL (0% diet DM; dotted line), LOW dried distillers grains with solubles (DDGS; 9.5% of diet DM; solid black line) and HIGH DDGS (19.5% of diet DM; solid grey line). 1Feeding times were 0 h (0700) and 12 h (1900).

Principal Coordinate Analysis (PCoA) of the core measureable microbiome (CMM) revealing separate clusters between the bacterial communities found in mixed ruminal bacteria collected from whole ruminal contents and duodenal digesta samples of steers consuming CONTROL, LOW dried distillers grains with solubles (DDGS), and HIGH DDGS; rum: mixed ruminal bacterial samples, duo: duodenal digesta samples.
