Effect of Chicken Plasma Protein Powder on Performance and Cellular Immunity of Piglets
Wei Yao, Wang Zhi-Sheng and Zhou An-Guo

Abstract:
The experiment was used to investigate the effect of Chicken’s plasma protein powder on performance and immunity in 32 crossbred piglets weaned at 28 day of age (4 groups of 4 each, 8.78±0.07 kg live weight). During 0-14 d, pigs were offered for different diets in both treatments, while received the same diet during the rest time of experiment. The effects of chicken’s plasma protein powder on performance, cellular immunity of weaned piglets were evaluated. The results indicated that during 0-14d, compared with the control group, Average Daily Gain (ADG), Average Daily Feed Intake (ADFI) of pigs fed with Chicken’s plasma protein increased by 65.50%, 37.11%, respectively (p<0.01); F/G decreased by 16.41% (p<0.01). In 14-28 d, compared with the control group, performance of piglets in Chicken’s plasma protein group was improved significantly. Compared with the control group, the serum interleukine-1 (IL-1) decrease by 8.8%, interleukine-1 receptor antagonist and interleukine-4 increased by 17.9%, 16.9%, respectively. The results suggested that Chicken’s plasma protein powder could enhance performance and improve the body immune function of piglets.
