Studies on colostral and milk whey proteins in the sow 2. The effect of delayed suckling on colostrum and milk whey proteins

  • F. J. Bourne (a1)

Colostral whey protein levels do not change during the first 4 hr from the start of parturition when suckling is prevented. Both early and late-born piglets returned to the sow at the end of this period are able to suck colostrum of a high protein concentration. Removal of piglets from the sow and the presence of an attendant did not affect the farrowing process.
