Many pig producers are moving towards early weaning in an effort to minimise disease transfer from sow to piglet. However, it is possible that the digestive function of early-weaned pigs may be immature and incapable of digesting many feedstuffs. The present study was designed to examine some of the factors that might influence pancreatic enzymic function in the weaned pig.
