Results of these studies suggest that experimental high molecular weight, whey protein concentrate can be an effective replacement for spray-dried animal plasma in diets for weanling pigs. Increasing spray-dried animal plasma improved ADG and ADFI quadratically, with the maximum response observed with 2.5% in 21-d-old pigs or 5.0% in 12-d-old pigs. The specialty whey protein concentrate fed from d 0 to 14 after weaning resulted in similar responses as spray-dried animal plasma fed during the same period and may be an effective alternative.; Swine Day, Manhattan, KS, November 19, 1998
