dc.description.abstract Some swine practitioners are advocating the use of dietary acidifiers to reduce urine pH and, thereby, reduce the incidence of urinary tract infections. In our experiment, sows fed an inorganic (phosphoric) acid had lower urine pH than sows fed diets with organic (fumaric, lactic, formic, propionic, and citric) acids. Indeed, the organic acids at 1.5% and 3.0% of the diet increased blood pH and decreased pC02,indicating that these sows were in a more alkalotic (not acidotic) state. en_US
