  1. aThe piglets were weaned on day 0 and challenged with E. coli F18 on day 1, 2, and 3 postweaning. bBlood was collected on day 0 before the piglets were moved to the nursery pen. cWBC, total white blood cells. dThe values are presented as percentages of the total WBC. eNLR, neutrophil/lymphocyte ratio; fRBC, red blood cells; gHb, hemoglobin.
