Some of nutritional strategies known to improve structure and function of gastrointestinal tract and (or) promote post-weaning growth with special emphasis on probiotics, prebiotics, organic acids, trace minerals and dietary protein source and level are focused on.
Feeding a diet with decreased protein content reduces indices of protein fermentation and the incidence of postweaning diarrhea in weaned pigs challenged with an enterotoxigenic strain of Escherichia…

Feeding an LP diet for 7 or 14 d after weaning markedly reduced the incidence of PWD after infection with beta-hemolytic E. coli, indices of protein fermentation, and production in pigs infected or not infected per os with an enterotoxigenic strain of Escherichia coli.
Diets containing inulin but not lupins help to prevent swine dysentery in experimentally challenged pigs.
Testing the hypothesis that inulin in the chicory root rather than galactans in lupins was responsible for protective effects shows that diets supplemented with highly fermentable carbohydrates from inulin protected pigs against developing swine dysentery.
Supra-nutritional vitamin E supplementation for 28 days before slaughter maximises muscle vitamin E concentration in finisher pigs.
Effects of continual fluctuation in feed intake on growth performance response and carcass fat-to-lean ratio in grower-finisher pigs.
The results indicated that continual fluctuation in feed intake either every other day or every 3 d had minimal effects on growth and carcass F:L compared with pigs fed the same restricted amount throughout the experiment.
Whole body protein deposition and plasma amino acid profiles in growing and/or finishing pigs fed increasing levels of sulfur amino acids with and without Escherichia coli lipopolysaccharide…

Results showed that increasing dietary SAA as DL-methionine in growing and/or finishing pigs altered plasma AA contents, and that use efficiency of the AA was improved when greater levels of SAA were supplemented in IS-activated pigs.

The results suggest that genetic and environmental conditions during the growth of lupins have a significant impact on the utilization of energy in grower pigs and the DE content can be predicted with a good degree of accuracy using physical and chemical characteristics.
Relationships between diets different in fibre type and content with growth, Escherichia coli shedding, and faecal microbial diversity after weaning
Effects of dietary protein level and zinc oxide supplementation on performance responses and gastrointestinal tract characteristics in weaner pigs challenged with an enterotoxigenic strain of…
The results indicate that feeding ZnO-supplemented diets improved pig performance, and feeding a lower protein diet without ZNO supplementation did not compromise performance nor modify measures of gastrointestinal tract structure and function compared with pigs fed a diet higher in protein after weaning.
Lysine requirements of Korean native ducklings for three weeks after hatch
The objective of the current study was to estimate the optimum digestible lysine requirements for maximum growth performance, efficient utilization of nitrogen, and carcass traits of male Korean native ducklings for 3 wk after hatch.
