Eighteen litters of newborn piglets were divided randomly to control and treatment groups. From 12 days of age, piglets in treatment group were fed starter diet supplemented with 120 mg/kg cysteamine (CS), while the control group were fed basal diet. Piglets were weaned at 35 days of age (D35) in both groups. 6 piglets from each group were slaughtered on D28 (7 d before weaning), D35 (weaning day), D36.5, D38, D42 and D45 (36 h, 72 h, 7 d and 10 d after weaning), respectively.
