Table 3 Apparent precaecal digestibility values of organic matter, crude protein and starch in piglets

From: Nutrient digestibility, organ morphometry and performance in vaccinated or non-vaccinated Lawsonia intracellularis infected piglets

Diet component Apparent precaecal digestibility rates (%)
Vac Non-vac/cs- Non-vac/cs+
Mean SD Mean SD Mean SD
Organic matter 62.2 7.94 66.7 2.03 64.7 5.09
Crude protein 71.6 5.18 72.5 3.93 70.2 4.25
Starch 91.3 2.32 93.2 1.97 93.3 2.31
  1. Vac vaccinated with Enterisol®Ileitis, Non-vac/cs- not vaccinated, clinically no signs, Non-vac/cs + not vaccinated, clinical signs
  2. Values within a row with different superscripts differ significantly at P < 0.05 (significances are missing)
