Hi Kevin, I don't know much about the mycobiome, but I would imagine colonization of the GI tract would be influenced strongly by species present on the maternal skin coating and that of the udder as well as in the general environment of the shed, in just the same way as bacterial colonization would occur. Quantitatively though, I suspect the microbiome has a greater impact than the mycobiome, bu ...

Introduction Retention of dietary protein to body protein is an inefficient process in pigs. Nitrogen balance studies have shown that nitrogen retention rate (proportion of intake) ranges from 41 - 68% in weaner pigs (Cera et al., 1988), 42 - 56% in grower pigs (Fabian et al., 2004, Otto et al., 2003, Zervas and Zijlstra, 2002), 30 - 46% in finisher pigs (Fabian et al., 2004), and 42 - 52% in sow ...

Background Immune system activation alters nutrient partitioning from deposition of body protein to production of immune molecules [1] and provokes inflammatory responses such as fever, inhibition of appetite and vomiting, which compromise the wellbeing and welfare of pigs [2, 3]. These responses are caused by release of pro-inflammatory cytokines and subsequent synthesis of the immunosuppressive ...

The human health benefits of dietary selenium (Se) and iron (Fe) are well established (Rayman, 1997; Kristensen et al., 2005).  Meat and meat products are primary sources of dietary Se and iron for humans. Pork from Se and Fe supplemented pigs may provide an additional source of these nutrients. However, the effects of supplementation of Se and iron on their status in muscles and effects on p ...
