About this book

Weaning represents a significant challenge to every young piglet and the success of the process is crucial to the lifetime performance of the animal. The transition from a liquid diet to one that is usually based on dry good ingredients is accompanied by major changes in digestive physiology, immune status and social and physical environments. Successful weaning is, therefore, thekey to effective growth, feed efficiency and the subsequent development of the pig. The book is developed from a British Society of Animal Science occasional meeting, held in September 2000. It brings together all of the scientific disciplines involved in the pre and post-weaning biology/development, nutrition, immunology/health, ethology and the physical environment.

Contents

Net energy requirements of the young piglet; starch digestion in the weaned piglet; food intake control; enzymes and biotechnology for the future; gut physiology and development; enteric and respiratory diseases in the young weaned piglet; practical management and housing of the young weaned piglet. (Part contents).
