Effects of galacto-oligosaccharides (GOS) on growth performance of suckling piglets. Piglets assigned to CON (n = 6) and GOS (n = 6) received physiological saline and GOS solution for 7 d after birth, respectively. (a) Body weight and (b) Average daily gain of suckling piglets. Significant differences (P < 0.05) among different aged piglets within each diet group are indicated by different letters (upper case for the CON group, lower case for GOS group). *Indicates a significant difference (P < 0.05) between the diets at each age. Values are expressed as means ± SD, CON: control group; GOS: GOS group
