Farmers generally provide a high level of concentrate to the cattle in order to improve cattle productivity. However, feeding a significant amount of concentrate to cattle can promptly induce rapid fermentation in the rumen, which results in high production of lactic acid and volatile fatty acid, decrease rumen pH and generate metabolic disease such as ruminal acidosis. A microbial approach, using microbes isolated from the rumen, may be an alternative eco-friendly option to prevent and treat this metabolic disorder. Lactic acid-utilizing bacteria isolated from the rumen can be a new alternative as it is naturally increasing during low ruminal pH conditions. Through several studies, a potential bacterium which can alleviate acidosis condition in ruminant is discovered. Pseudoramibacter sp. MF926250, which has a high activity of lactic acid utilization, may become the potential to a ruminal acidosis in the area of ruminant agriculture.
