omasal

pertaining to or emanating from the omasum.

omasal atony
due to poorly digestible roughage in the diet; feed stagnates, leading to atony and eventually impaction.
omasal functional stenosis
achalasia of the reticulo-omasal sphincture as part of the syndrome of vagus indigestion of cows; causes accumulation of ingesta in the reticulorumen.
omasal impaction
usually identified at autopsy. Clinically there is recurrent indigestion with anorexia, scant, hard feces and possibly palpation of hard, distended omasum through the right flank or per rectum.

SCFAs are removed from the rumen by absorption across the rumen wall and by passage from the rumen through the omasal orifice (Allen, 1997).
The peptide outflow in the ruminal, omasal and duodenal of animals in IC and AHC groups was significantly higher than that of the control; however, the amount of SNAN in the omasal and duodenal was significantly increased in the IC group compared with control.
Soluble non-ammonia nitrogen in ruminal and omasal digesta of Korean native steers supplemented with soluble proteins.
The present study, therefore, aimed to study the effect of soluble protein supplements on the concentration of SNAN in ruminal (RD) and omasal digesta (OD) of Korean native beef cattle fed rice straw and corn-based concentrate supplemented with different soluble proteins and to investigate diurnal patterns in the SNAN concentration in RD and OD.
RD was sampled from the rumen via the ruminal cannula, and OD was collected from the omasal canal by means of a plastic tube (14 mm i.
