The objective of this research was to evaluate the behavior of hematological indicators in pre-fattening pigs supplemented with multipurpose autochthonous microorganism’s (MAM) fermented concentrate. Sixty pigs (York Land x CC21) weaned at 30 days of birth and an average weight of 8.1 kg, randomly selected from a larger total, were used. They were divided into three groups of 20 animals each ones: 1) consumed starter feed and were treated with antibiotics and antiparasitics as prophylactics; functioned as a control group. 2) Received the same concentrate but fermented during 12 hours with MAM. 3) Consumed fermented concentrate for 24 hours. Bought fermented variants were offered as first ration in the morning; the rest of the day the animals consumed dry concentrate. All animals were kept in Flat-Deck systems. Only the 24-hour fermented feedstuffs reached the suggested protein content for pre-fattening. Exclusively, animals in group 3 reached normal hematocrit and hemoglobin values. The quantities of leukocytes, lymphocytes and eosinophil were similar in the three investigated groups. Fermentation of starter concentrates with MAM for 24 hours positively influences hematocrit and hemoglobin values of pre-fattening swine. Its prophylactic effect is compatible with that achieved with antibiotics and antiparasitics without its adverse side effects.
