Porcine Pili Shield® helps the sow build protective antibodies that she passes along in the colostrum to nursing piglets. These antibodies help prevent E. coli bacteria from attaching to the intestinal wall. Without attachment, the bacteria do not produce toxins. Most of the toxic E. coli strains isolated from swine are K88, K99, 987P or F41 – the four types that Porcine Pili Shield helps control.
