The aim of this study was to evaluate the effect of Mentha piperita L. (MP) dried leaves on the in vitro rumen methanogenesis and fermentation. It was found that after 24 hours of incubations, addition of 16.34 and 23.35 mg of MP to the 233.3 mg of substrate significantly decreased methane emission by 41.52 and 15.51%, respectively. Simultaneously, the MP supplementation exerted no effect on the dry matter digestibility and volatile fatty acid profile. Addition of MP to the ruminants' diet inhibits the methane production without altering the basic parameters of rumen fermentation.
