Increasing attention is paying to gut microorganisms, especially gut microflora in ruminants. Here, we explored the literature related to the study of ruminant intestinal microorganisms, in order to answer the questions as follows: (1) what are the distributions of research power in terms of countries, authors, and keywords? (2) what is the frontier research? Our analysis showed ruminant gut microbiological research experienced two stages: germination, and rapid development, GUAN LL, CHAUCHEYRAS-DURAND F, SUEN G were the top three local impact authors and the most relevant authors. USA, China, France and Canada were the main countries. The main keywords were diversity, bacteria, gastrointestinal-tract, rumen, and fermentation. Fungi and bacteria in rumen and intestinal and the evolution of microorganisms in rumen and intestine may need to be strengthened.
