Weaning piglets without prophylactic use of antibiotics is facilitated by dietary SDPP

Conference Abstract
European Society of Veterinary and Comparative Nutrition (ESVCN) 2015

Transient anorexia and abrupt deprivation of lactogenic bio-active compounds  are major factors in the multifactorial etiology of diarrhea and/or transient weight dip following weaning. Dietary spray-dried porcine plasma (SDPP) stimulates post-weaning feed intake in piglets and is an alternative source of immunoglobulins and other glycoproteins present in sow’s milk. The production process of HAT-SDPP includes an additional anti-viral treatment in which plasma is treated at pH 10.2 and 48°C for 10 min., but effects of dietary HAT-SDPP on piglet performance have not been evaluated yet. The aim of this study was to evaluate the effect of SDPP and HAT-SDPP on post-weaning piglet performance under conditions of absence of prophylactic use of antibiotics. We hypothesized a considerable incidence of postweaning diarrhea and impaired performances in control piglets.
