    Wageningen Academic Publishers Weaning The Pig: Concepts And Consequences by JR Pluske and JLe Dividich and MWA Verstegen

    This volume addresses the major issues surrounding the weaning process, both for piglets and the breeding herd, in modern-day pig production. The post-weaned pig presents many challenges to the manager, stockperson and nutritionist, and as such is a critical phase in the overall production system. Numerous challenges are also faced by the sow, which is required to be rebred as soon as possible after weaning. The book draws together summaries of research dealing with both piglets and the sow. The material presented covers the areas of: growth of the weaned pig; nutritional management in preparation for weaning; behavioural changes and adaptations around weaning; voluntary feed intake; digestive physiology; modulation of small intestinal integrity; the intestinal microflora and diarrhoeal diseases after weaning; intestinal immunity; nutritional requirements and intestinal requirements of the weaned pig; environmental and housing issues after weaning; saving and rearing supernumery and underprivileged piglets; and productivity and longevity of the weaned sow.
