Early Weaning's Affect of Piglets
Michigan State University concluded a very interesting investigation about early weaning and its effect on the development of a piglet's gut. It can also affect the ability to launch an immune response against detrimental gut bugs. Additionally, they studied how long the effects lasted.

Understanding the barrier function of the gut was a priority. There are several layers that protect against bugs and toxins. The gut can become permeable or leak when that area is compromised. It was noted that pigs weaned at 21 days had permeable gut at just 3 hours after weaning whereas the ones that stayed on the sow were still intact.
