Hyper-immunised eggs for healthy piglets

Hyper-immunised egg powder for piglets? Dr. Ioannis Mavromichalis, General Manager of Ariston Nutrition explains this issue further in his new blog at our sister website PigProgress.net.

Hyper-immunised egg powder is basically pasteurised eggs derived from hens strongly immunised against specific pathogens that affect piglets post-weaning.

As a result of this hyper-immunisation, eggs produced by these hens are extremely rich in immunoglobulins. And, it is immunoglobulins that attach themselves to pathogenic bacteria rendering them harmless to the animal.

According to Dr. Mavromichalis, hyper-immunised egg powder not only minimises the risk of scours post-weaning in piglets, but it can also replace plasma!
