Example text

These data suggest higher levels of Echinacea enhanced feed efficiency compared to the 0% Echinacea during the first 2 weeks and were greater than the Mecadox diet during the weeks 0-3 and 0 4 . Echinacea-treated pigs exhibited a slight, but not objectionable, off-flavor when compared to pigs fed noninclusion levels. Overall, the performance was similar, suggesting minimal subclinical stress during this experiment. Higher levels of Echinacea may be required to enhance growth rate and feed efficiency.

However, given an apparent low rate of calf scours morbidity and mortality observed in this study, the ability to identify a significant reduction in risk of scours in the treated group may not be practical due to the sample size. For the current sample size, and an observed 7% disease incidence in the control group, the disease rate in the nosode treated group would need to be 5 1% to show significant efficacy of the nosode treatment (95% confidence, 80% power). In other words, near complete elimination of scours in the nosode treated group would have been required to find a significant positive effect for the treatment for a study population of this size.

Purpurea, and Echinacea pallida are most commonly considered for medicinal purposes (McGregor, 1968). The whole plant, including aerial portions and taproots, has been utilized. Additionally, pressed juice from the aerial portion of E. purpurea and aqueous and alcohol extracts of the roots have viral inhibition characteristics in cell culture (Wacker and Hilbig, 1978). The German government has approved oral use of Echinacea for respiratory and urinary tract infections in humans and topically for improving wound healing.
