Swine nutrition

Welcome to the page about Swine nutrition of Engormix; a source of knowledge on Swine nutrition.

Introduction: Plasma of porcine origin often contains PEDV RNA which raises some concerns about biosecurity and transmission of viruses within pig populations. In contrast, it is well recognized that the addition of plasma to pig feed enhances immune reactions and also has some intrinsic inhibition on virus survival. The objective of this study was to determine if there is any benefit to the diet containing spray-dried plasma (SDP) of bovine origin during acute PEDV...

Introduction: Smallholder pig farmers in east Africa typically wean pigs at 6 to 8 weeks. Farmers report that commercially prepared pig diets are too expensive and therefore typically feed forage and food waste. This results in low average daily gain (ADG), especially for the newly weaned pig. The objective was to describe the weaning weights of local and crossbred Ugandan pigs purchased from smallholder farmers and to compare the growth rate of the pigs fed forage- or...

Introduction Zearalenone (ZEA) is a worldwide distributed mycotoxin as indicated by the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC). 1–3 Its toxicity and incidence was confirmed by recent reports. 4,5 This resorcylic lactone is produced mainly by Fusarium graminearum and is one of the most important toxins causing serious reproductive failures in pig production, due to its ability to couple 17--estradiol receptors. This interference with cytosolic...

Background The process of microbial colonization of the gut after birth plays an important role in the development of the neonatal immune system of mammals with implications during their whole life [1]. Immediately after birth, environmental and maternal bacteria, including colonization via the vagina, nipple surface, and milk, quickly colonize the offspring gut and establish the initial microbiota of the piglet [2,3,4]. The intestinal microbiota protects against colonization by...

The swine industry has largely gone to early weaning (3 weeks or earlier) especially in confinement production systems with environmentally controlled nurseries. Economic factors such as increasing the number of pig per sow per year and the need to maximize the capital cost of swine farrowing units by moving more sow through the facilities has...

INTRODUCTION Pork is a highly popular food for many people owing to its excellent nutritional qualities. However, consumers usually do not choose their food solely for its nutrients and other characteristics are also taken into account, such as whether the product is visually appealing, chemically and biologically safe to eat, free from artificial preservatives or food additives, and healthy (Jaturasitha et al., 2016). Fats are one of the few components of meat that can be...

INTRODUCTION Highly digestible feed ingredients and feed additives are used to help young pigs transition from sow’s milk to solid diets (Skinner et al., 2014; Valini et al., 2021). Thus, the cost of swine diets is greatest during the nursery phase of production due to the complexity of ingredients, e.g., whey, blood plasma and industrial amino acids. As compensatory growth has been associated with increased feed efficiency, it is a mechanism that may help to increase...

Introduction: Gastric ulcerations are a special challenge in modern pork production. Stress can be a reason but in particular the existing milieu conditions have an impact on the development of gastric lesions. The dietetic effects of fibre sources in pigs’ gastrointestinal tract are well known. In some cases fibre sources are used as material for the pigs to root and manipulate. The present study was focused on the amount ingested when fibre sources are offered and...

Introduction: Weaning is an important period in the life of the pigs, because they require adapting quickly to the environmental and nutritional changes that exist in the pigpen. The objective of this assay was to assess the effect of three doses of the dietary supplement VIUSID vet, on the productive behavior of pigs after the weaning. Materials and Methods: For this work, four groups of 30 newly weaned pigs were used (females). The animals were weaned at...
