Spray-dried plasma and immune egg products provide dramatic benefits when added to diets of young weaned pigs. Spray-dried plasma increases growth rate and resistance to enteric infection, while properly-targeted immune egg products markedly improve resistance to disease. Whey proteins provide modest benefits in growth rate. The benefits of dried porcine solubles and of conventional egg products remain unclear.
