BackgroundSpray-dried plasma (SDP) is one of additives in swine diets [1–3] and contains high protein with balanced contents of amino acids and various physiological components, such as immunoglobulins, peptides, glycoproteins, and others [4], that contribute to modulation of microbial populations [5, 6], immune responses and inflammation [4, 7, 8], and intestinal morphology [8, 9], and othe ...

The 2021 global demand for pork is high, favoring better pig prices for producers. Feed ingredient prices have also dramatically increased and may tighten profitability margins for pig producers. When both feed ingredient costs and pork prices are high, better FCR and better pig growth are especially important for the producer's bottom line. It is well known that a healthy pig is a more p ...

IntroductionThere is an increasing global regulatory movement to ensure the judicious use of antibiotics at farms producing milk, meat, eggs, fish, and seafood to reduce the prevalence of antibiotic-resistant pathogens that affect human health. The result of these regulatory changes will reduce the length of time antibiotics can be used, may eliminate the use of antibiotics at farms that are also ...

It is well known that heat stress or disease stress during gestation and lactation reduces sow herd productivity and profitability. Lactating sows need a high feed intake to maintain their body condition and to support milk production. When sows don’t eat enough feed, especially during stressful episodes can harm both sow and litter production. One possible solution to this problem ...

 Plasma is comprised of a complex mixture of functional proteins that have a profound, positive impact on animals.Consumed orally, functional proteins help the immune system to respond more quickly and efficiently. This helps animals to use their energy for productive functions instead of using it to fight the stressor.Plasma functional proteins help to minimize the effects of stressors and g ...

A newly published open access review article [1] discusses the epidemiological conclusions made about how porcine epidemic diarrhea virus (PEDV) may have been introduced to the first confirmed PEDV case farm in Ontario, Canada on January 22, 2014. The authors noted that an epidemiological investigation [2] had concluded that “The weight of evidence gathered during an outbreak of porcine epid ...

Why was a review of the 2014 Canadian PEDV outbreaks conducted? At the time of the 2014 Canadian PED outbreak, an extensive epidemiological investigation was initiated. The results of the investigation were published in a series of papers and are commonly cited when discussing the risk of spreading disease through feed and feed ingredients. However, considering everything that has been learned a ...
