Abstract

With the aim to improve growth of weaning piglets and to minimize incidence of intestinal diseases, the effect of a combination of functional foods able to stimulate the development of systemic and mucosal immune system and to modulate bacterial populations in the gut was evaluated. In this study, we assessed the impact of functional foods on the course of Salmonella infection in piglets. Piglets from different litters were weaned at 21 days of age and assigned to 1 of the 4 feed additives (8 litters per treatment) as follow: 1-control (CTRL), 2-antibiotic (ATB), 3-cocktail of functional foods (CFF), 4-bovine colostrum + cocktail of functional foods (COL-CFF).

Evaluation of the impact of functional foods on the course of Salmonella infection in piglets
