Challenged Herd Health Study

Challenged Herd Health Study

FURST PROTECT™ is a nutritional supplement, providing essential fatty acids that play a critical role in supporting development of the gut, immune system and other physiological needs.

A 25-day disease challenge trial was conducted (10-day pre-challenge, 15-day post-challenge) by Dee et al. (2020) where pigs were exposed to PRRSv 174, PEDv and SVA through artificially-contaminated feed through the use of a contaminated ice block.  Figure 1 and 2 show key results from this study of FURST PROTECT™ as compared to the challenged control, and the full paper can be found here Dee et al 2020.
