Digestion problems during weaning

Weaning is a period of significant change and stress in pig’s life. The GI tract is not fully developed of weaned piglets and stomach pH tends to be high (often over 5) due to a combination of poor endogenous HCl secretion, lack of lactic acid from lactose fermentation, and intake of large meals at infrequent intervals.
