Establish efficacy of the “best” nutritional/supplemental strategy determined in WP1 and WP2 under unfavourable conditions by using established infection/challenge models in pigs and poultry. To achieve this aim, 3 objectives and 5 tasks are defined:
3.1. Use in vivo model for ETECAn important cause of bacterial diarrhea during the post weaning period in the life of a pig. It is ... infection and LPS or weaning challenge to verify efficiency of nutritional/supplemental strategies in pig and broilerChickens kept for meat production. Fast growing breeds can reach a weight of over 2 kg at 5 weeks of... production [T 3.1 ,T 3.2 ,T 3.3].
3.2. Use in ovo technology to mitigate environmental antigen and heat stressA condition when animals do not have the ability to withstand high ambient temperatures especially w... in poultry production using early programming [T 3.4,T 3.5].
3.3. Identify novel metabolic proxies with key roles in the trade-offs between defense and performance following exposure to GIT nematodesParasitic worms with long narrow and threadlike bodies that reside in the gut of an host animal. The... in chickens [T 3.6].
