Effects of dietary supplementation with benzoic acid on intestinal morphological structure and microflora in weaned piglets
Abstract A total of 72 weaned pigs [(Yorkshire×Landrace)×Duroc] with an average BW of 6.03±0.78 kg (24 d of age) were used in a 42-d trial to explore the potential mechanisms of dietary benzoic acidExpand
