Interaction Among Lactose, Spray-Dried Animal Plasma, And Soybean Meal Levels May Affect Segregated Early-Weaned Pigs

Kansas State University Swine Research. Pigs weaned in a segregated early weaning (SEW) environment achieved maximum performance when fed a sequence of diets containing a gradual decrease in spray-dried animal plasma. Furthermore, pigs weaned at approximately 19 days responded positively to 20% soybean meal. Increased levels of lactose enhanced the increases in performance from soybean meal.
