Abstract

Anemia as it most frequently occurs in baby pigs usually is caused by an iron deficiency. Iron stored in a baby pig is extremely limited and is quickly used to produce hemoglobin to maintain oxygen-carrying capacity in the blood. Supplemental iron is needed almost immediately since the quantity of iron received from sow's milk is extremely small.; Swine Day, Manhattan, KS, September 25, 1969
