Effect of feeding level on the composition of the intestinal microbiota in weaned piglets.

Abstract

In piglets, the development and composition of intestinal microbiota is influenced by dietary factors. A considerable reduction in feed intake during the transition from liquid to solid feed is often accompanied by postweaning diarrhea. Therefore, it is hypothesized that variations in feeding level during weaning may affect intestinal microbial composition… (More)
