“Role of Nutrition and Intestinal Adaptation in Weanling Pig Health”
Track: Nutrition/Feeding/Gut Physiology Summary: The growth rate of the pig is most rapid during the neonatal and weaning periods. Nutrition and gastrointestinal function play a critical role in the survival, health and growth of the young pig during this transition from suckling to weaning. The high metabolic rate and cellular turnover of gut tissues result in substantial first-pass utilization of dietary nutrients, especially amino acids, to maintain gut function

“Mycoplasma hyopneumoniae infections in pigs: update on epidemiology and control”
Track: Respiratory Diseases ummary: Mycoplasma hyopneumoniae (M. hyopneumoniae), the primary pathogen of enzootic pneumonia, occurs worldwide and causes major economic losses to the pig industry. The organism adheres to and damages the ciliated epithelium of the respiratory tract. M. hyopneumoniae is primarily introduced into a herd by purchasing (subclinically) infected animals and/or, less frequently, by airborne transmission within short distances.
