Provides up to date information on the suckling and weaned piglet
This new book provides up to date information on the suckling and weaned piglet, replacing other books on the topic that were published over 15 years ago.
It covers novel and important topics such as microbiota development in piglets and management of hyperprolific litters as well as weaning age and its long term influence on piglet heath and performance. The developments of lean and fat tissues and of the intestinal immune system in young pigs are also described in detail.
Emphasis is put on well-being with chapters focussing on husbandry interventions in suckling piglets as well as consequences of the lactational environment on behavioural disturbances of pigs after weaning. The multiple stressors encountered at and post-weaning are also discussed. Updates on essential subjects such as neonatal mortality, creep feeding of suckling piglets, feeding strategies for weaned pigs, housing systems post-weaning and diseases of piglets are provided.
This book should be an important source for animal scientists, nutritionists, veterinarians and swine producers. It cotains the most recent knowledge that will assist in improving the performance and welfare of suckling and weaned piglets.
