New evidence demonstrates the correlation of SARA on lipopolysaccharide (LPS) release in the rumen. A study performed in Poland with commercial herds, reveals that reduced rumen pH leads to an increase of rumen LPS levels, which stimulates the expression of the LPS receptor complex and immune response through the inflammation pathway.
