Research materials on the use of herbal infusions for the correction of weaning stress in piglets, as well as the complex use of natural products as stress correctors are presented in the article. Infusions of medicinal plants from the leaves of nettle, plantain, rose hips and rowan were used to normalize metabolism and increase the overall immunological resistance of the body. They are distinguished by good tolerance, very rare development of negative side reactions, even with prolonged use. It has been experimentally established that the adaptogenic effect of infusions of nettle, plantain, wild rose and rowan is manifested by an increase in the general nonspecific resistance of the animal body due to the effect on the stress-limiting systems of the body. As a result of the studies carried out, it was found that the use of medicinal plants had a positive effect on the use of feed nutrients by animals and a change in the live weight of pigs. The complex use of natural remedies contributed to an increase in the growth rate of young animals and, ultimately, to an increase in their preservation and productivity. The use of rose hip infusions 20 days before weaning of piglets from sows turned out to be the most effective in terms of preservation, growth and additional income when growing piglets.
