Fernando Leite - Best Student Abstract at Leman Conference
The study "The Effects of Availa Zn and Availa Zn LQ Supplementation in Pigs Challenged with a Subclinical Dose of Lawsonia intracellularis" found that zinc supplementation with zinc amino acid complex (Availa Zn) helped pigs respond better to infection with L. intracellularis and
led to decreased lesions. The Allen D. Leman Swine Conference is an annual educational event for the global swine industry.
