Descriptive study of creep feeding practices for preweaning piglets

, : Descriptive study of creep feeding practices for preweaning piglets. Medecin Veterinaire du Quebec 24(3): 105-109

Creep feeding practices and their influence on average preweaning growth are described in this paper. Data were obtained from 242 litters originating from 57 commercial swine herds located near Saint-Hyacinthe, Quebec. Although creep feeding was a very common practice in these herds, it did not meet the usual recommendations in terms of daily frequency and age at first distribution. Moreover, the total amount of creep feed distributed was highly variable. Creep feeding as it was practiced in these herds did not seem to improve preweaning growth.

Using a modified version of a phenomenological model for the dynamics of synaptic plasticity, we examine some recent experiments of Wu et al. ((2001) J Physiol 533:745-755). We show that the model is quantitatively consistent with their experiment...
