Objective: The objective of this study was to determine whether oral supplementation of piglets with rennet increases immunoglobulin absorption and thereby piglet serum globulin concentrations. Serum immunoglobulin concentrations in piglets derived from induced farrowing and non-induced farrowing multiparous (MP) and primiparous (PP) sows were compared.
