    destroyer says ruminants stomach has alkaline pH, I checked wiki and it says

    "Under normal fermentation conditions the environment in the reticulorumen is weakly alkaline and is populated by microbes that are adapted to the elevated ph; since the stomach is acidic it acts as a barrier that kills reticulorumen flora as they flow into it."

    so its only the reticulorumen that's alkaline but the stomach is acidic, can someone please explain why destroyer says the stomach is alkaline?, thanks

    I checked scaum and campbell, neither says anything about ruminant stomach ph
