APP in the fattening period

In the context of a short project, the acute phase protein (APP) haptoglobin was used as a screeningparameter in five fattening farms. The aim of the present work was to examine if the parameter haptoglobin could be used for punctual investigation in the enterprises instead of a course analyses.

It turned out that this method of blood sampling of pig groups of different ages on one day showed that the parameter haptoglobin is suitable not only for a course analyses, but also for a punctual investigation in the enterprises.
