Abstract

Disease challenges drastically diminish pork production productivity and efficiency and have substantial negative economic impacts on producers. Sick pigs do not perform well; feed intake drops, growth slows and consequently days required to reach market weight increases. While symptoms of infection are well understood, research on the interactions between the immune response and nutrient metabolism is evolving almost daily.
