Abstract:

The experiment was conducted to study the blood profile of pre-weaned Hampshire piglets fed creep ration supplemented with probiotics and milk powder. Twenty eight numbers of piglets were selected from litters of four sows, thus forming T0, T1, T2 and T3 groups having 7 piglets each and allocated to different feeding treatment. The result of average haemoglobin (Hb) (gm/100ml) (9.70±0.66, 9.85±0.65, 10.10±0.59, 11.45±0.91 in T0, T1, T2 and T3 respectively) revealed no significant difference (P <0.05) among the groups with a non-significantly higher Hb level in T3 and T2 when compared to T0 and T1. The average total protein (gm/100ml) (6.69 ±0.12, 6.92±0.18, 6.40±0.23 and 5.84 ±0.24 in T0, T1, T2 and T3 respectively) were significantly higher in T0 and T1 as compared to T3. The average blood glucose (mg/100ml) (100.73±2.56, 87.27±4.33, 92.83±5.26 and 92.13±2.93) did not differ significantly (P<0.05) among the groups. However, it was slightly lower in T1 followed by T3 and T2 as compared to T0. The findings indicated that dietary supplementation of milk powder and probiotics alone or in combinations had a non-significant influence on haemoglobin, total protein and glucose levels of blood in piglets and the levels remained well within their respective normal range.
