Résumé

This study confirms the high correlation between a sow’s SE titer and her piglet’s SE titer when the sampling was done at day 7-10 of lactation. Therefore, in the cases where this correlation was not seen, we might assume poor colostrum intake by the piglet. Consequently, the SE colostrum transfer test could be a useful tool for swine practitioners to investigate the quality of colostrum intake and differentiate between farms.
