Spray-dried egg shows potential as an alternative protein source for weaned pigs

U.S research suggests that SDE is a valuable nutrient source in nursery pig diets which may provide additional physiological benefits that specifically improve the health of pigs


Historically, the post-weaning period has been a focal point for nutrition research since pigs at this stage of production are especially susceptible to disease. This susceptibility is due, in part, to the stress of weaning, an immature immune system and the delicate dietary balance that must be struck to provide nutrients to young pigs with exacting requirements and immature digestive systems.
