Forty-eight growing pigs (23 kg BW) were assigned to four treatments (n = 12) arranged as a 2 x 2 factorial. Dietary energy source (conventional [CON] vs high-oil corn [HOC]), with or without an immunological challenge (IC) regimen constituted main effects. The IC regimen consisted of injection of endotoxin (E. coli lipopolysaccharide [LPS]) and vaccination for porcine respiratory and reproductive syndrome (PRRS). Growth performance data were collected over a 5-wk period and are presented as… CONTINUE READING
