16S rRNA gene copy number of the total rumen bacterial community in rumen contents in the most- and the least-efficient multiparous Holstein dairy cows during the peripartal period. Significant differences (P < 0.05) between RFI groups at a given time point are denoted with an asterisk (*). a, bDifferent letters indicate differences due to the main effect of time (P < 0.05)
