Decades of selection for increased litter size has caused a proportion of sows to consistently produce low birth weight (LBW) litters resulting in economic loss for producers due to reduced piglet survivability and growth. We hypothesized that piglets from LBW litters would have altered gut microbial composition, intestinal architecture, and intestinal transcriptomic profiles compared with...

The objective of this study was to assess the effects of low-dose zinc oxide (ZnO) supplemented with or without probiotic complex compared with pharmacological ZnO (3000 mg kg−1) on the performance, digestibility, blood metabolites, fecal Lactobacillus and enterobacteria counts of weaned piglets. One-hundred and twenty crossbred piglets were randomly allocated to three treatments based on their...
