IntroductionWeaning events such as changes in diets, facilities, and littermates are among the factors that cause weaning stress. The weaning stress can lead to inflammatory activation in the intestine and damage of enterocytes [1, 2], reducing the digestibility of nutrients in feeds and nutrient absorption. It has long been demonstrated that pigs weaned at older ages are less susceptible to weani ...

INTRODUCTIONMycotoxins are secondary metabolic products of fungi with toxigenic effects in other living species. Worldwide, about 88% of animal feed and feedstuffs are contaminated with at least one mycotoxin . Fusarium toxins are the most prevalent, where deoxynivalenol ranks at first with 64% of occurrence, followed by fumonisins and zearalenone .In pigs chronically fed deoxynivalenol cont ...

1. IntroductionThe microbiota plays important roles on the maturation of the intestine and immune system and consequently affects the health of the host [1,2]. The physicochemical properties and the direct interaction with intestinal cells lead to a distinguishable composition of the microbiota along the gastrointestinal tract [3–5]. The microbiota in the intestinal lumen is more related to ...

IntroductionWith intensive genetic selection for the prolificacy of sows, the swine industry is challenged with improving the piglet survival rate in connection with the increased litter size and decreased litter uniformity (Kim and Hansen, 2013). It is well known that maternal nutrition can have an influence on not only the development of fetal organ and tissue but also milk yield (Kim et al., 19 ...
