the intestinal absorption of total protein, IgG, albumin, beta-lactoglobulin, SCTI and trypsin was studied in newborn unsuckled piglets by feeding them either on normal colostrum or trypsin-inhibition-free colostrum. The results indicate a correlation between the molecular weights of the fed proteins and the time at which they reach their maximum concentration in the blood. Feeding of inhibition-free colostrum resulted in a significantly lower absorption. Evidently the trypsin inhibitors of sow… CONTINUE READING
