Studies were conducted to determine the effect of galactan on the colonization of E. coli and lactobacilli and ileal pH and volatile fatty acid production in the digestive tract of the weanling pig. In each of two replicate trials, eight 21-d-old nursing pigs were cannulated in the terminal ileum. After a 7-d recovery period, the pigs were weaned and randomly assigned to two test diets: 1) a corn-soybean meal-based control diet and 2) a similar diet containing 1% galactan. On d 1 after weaning… CONTINUE READING
