Abstract

The present study was performed to investigate rumen protozoa (ciliates) in pasture-raised Mongolian sheep lambs with their aging, identify the genus and species using the manual relied on morphology of detected ciliates and determine their counts. As a result of this study, ciliates of 6 genera belonging to orders Entodiniomorрhа and Holotrichа were detected and identified and they were aslo documented by photography. Ciliates are distinguished with their own specific features and their main characteristic is structure of hair-like organelles called cilia.
