  1. aIUGR-BA piglets with intrauterine growth retardation fed the Bacillus amyloliquefaciens-supplemented diet, IUGR-CON piglets with intrauterine growth retardation fed the control diet, NBW-CON piglets with normal birth weight fed the control diet
  2. bOne-way ANOVA test. A value of P < 0.05 was considered as statistically significant
