The effects of hemoglobin (Hb) status and coping style of pigs on performance and humoral immune response were studied. Twenty-four, 4-wk-old crossbred barrows were assigned to groups of three pigs based on weight and litter origin. Groups were allotted according to a 2 x 2 factorial treatment arrangement: two blood Hb concentration classes (low vs high)(More)
We investigated the effect of (Hb) and immunization status on energy metabolism of newly weaned pigs. An additional focus of the study was to determine the development of circadian rhythms as evidenced by heat production patterns. Twenty-four 4-wk-old crossbred weanling barrows were placed into groups of three based on weight and litter origin, and the(More)
It is well-established that parathyroid hormone (PTH) correlates with the level of bone turnover in patients with chronic kidney disease stage 5D (CKD-5D).
