We compared the health and performance of weaned pigs in a high health herd between groups receiving low level antibiotics in the feed to groups receiving probiotic in the feed and no antibiotics. Performance and health were similar between the two treatments. This study indicates that some high health status nurseries may be able to reduce antibiotic use and reserve them for disease challenges of more significance.
