Abstract

Four hundred and seventy piglets were assigned to four treatment groups: iodine, trisodium citrate, a dry dip created using nisin with talc, and no treatment. No treatment differences were noted on change in diameter or incidence of infection of the umbilical cord during the first 48 hours (P > .05).
