Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


[Autom. eng. transl.] In conclusion from the experimental test that saw the administration of a complementary food based on peat the number of deaths caused by enteric problems was statistically lower than 0.5 units in the treated group compared to the control. In addition, only numerical differences emerged but not statistically significant in weaning weight in favor of treatment. Instead, it emerged that piglets belonging to the primipara group had a greater weaning weight than piglets in the group of multiparas regardless of the treatment or not. The percentage of deaths from enteric causes in relation to the number of total deaths was statistically lower in the primipara group. In cases of enteric diseases, a significant decrease in cases of diarrhea due to Clostridium spp was recorded in the treated group. There was a decrease in the diarrheal cases due to Escherichia coli in the group of primiparous sows compared to that of the multiparas, but without relation to the treatment. The results obtained are further to be investigated; in particular, the effects of the treatment during the entire production cycle, specifically during the post-weaning phase, should be evaluated. The analysis of feces and effects on the metabolism of the product should also be investigated.
