Abstract

Postweaning colibacillosis remains an important production-limiting condition in many piggeries. Its occurrence can be influenced by many factors, including the composition of the weaner diet (1). There is some evidence that feeding diets high in non-starch polysaccharides (NSP) may alleviate postweaning colibacillosis (2,3). In this study we examined the effect of dietary NSP in the weaner pig on body growth and the interaction with experimentally reproduced post-weaning colibacillosis.
