BioFAT is a bioproduct contained PUFAs, Se, Vitamin E and herb (Euphorbia thymifolia Burm (L.)). Data were conducted on experiments of added 2 and 4% of BioFAT into basic diets for post-weaning piglets for 3 weeks of feeding to improve growth performance and health status, 22.45% and 32.86% of daily gain which was a higher than controls. The study also showed that there is reduced feed consumption for kg of growth rate from 1.67 kg of control was down to 1.36; and 1.29 kg of feed consumption (FCR). Furthermore, BioFAT is also enhanced for piglets to resistance E.coli infection and rate of infections was lower in added 2 and 4% of BioFAT from 20% to 6.7 and 0% piglets diarrhea. Especially the practice has shown that diversity of Escherichia coli isolates were obtained from common host sources of fecal pollution and characterized by using repetitive extragenic palindromic (REP) PCR fingerprinting.
