Many studies have been conducted to explain the postweaning lag period often described in pigs weaned onto a nursery diet that contains soybean meal as a protein source. Most researchers have concluded that some type of aberrant immune response to soy proteins plays a major role in this postweaning lag. This paper characterizes and describes the pathogenesis involved with the response to soy proteins in weaned piglets and recommends some practical ways to manage the problem.
