Effects of starvation and zinc intake on vitamin A and E levels in the blood plasma of piglets



Effects of starvation and zinc intake on vitamin A and E levels in the blood plasma of piglets



Acta Veterinaria Brno 52(1/2): 49-57



Concentrations of vitamins A and E in plasma were determined in 4 experiments using 102 Large White X Landrace pigs weaned at 4 weeks old. First, 13 pigs were starved for 5 days, 26 days after weaning. Compared to similar pigs, not starved but given less protein and vitamins A and E, they were lighter and had lower liver vitamin reserves when slaughtered after 2 days refeeding.
