Enteric diseases such as colitis, enteritis and ileitis are huge problems for the pig industry, caused not only by infectious agents, but in abuse of the healthy defence mechanisms of the gastrointestinal tract. Economic pressures require maximum utilisation of digestive capacity. Early weaning of pigs places huge demands on gut physiology.
how can we better understand and promote digestive function in swine?

This textbook brings together edited (some revised) papers presented at the 8th Symposium on Digestive Physiology in Pigs held in Uppsala in June 2000. It contains papers from leading scientists from around the world in this increasingly important and complex subject area.

Among other features it contributes to the development of the scientific study of effects of nutrition on gut physiology. The book also creates a platform for intelligent future practice and research and increases our knowledge of how to optimize the nutrition of suckling, weaner and finisher pigs to help prevent diet-related gastrointestinal disease conditions.
