Title: Early weaning affects gut development in piglets and increases the chance of intestinal diseases
Author: Lackeyram, D.; Yang, C.; Archbold, T.; Swanson, K.C.; Fan, M.Z.; Institute for Community Engaged Scholarship
Abstract: In piglets, early weaning harms gut development by decreasing the activity of IAP, an important digestive enzyme. This also makes the piglets more susceptible to gut diseases. Not only did early-weaned piglets have less IAP in their intestines, but their IAP was also less effective at breaking down nutrients and bacterial toxins.
