The Livestock Industry Foundation for Africa has been very proactive in educating rural and peri-urban farmers about mycotoxin and its effects on livestock production in Africa. The organization discussed at Ogun State with farmers and hatchery operators about the role the mycotoxins play in the quality of their day old chicks.
The topic was "Day old chick health status and early mortalities: consequences of mycotoxins on breeder farms and hatchery management in West Africa: case studies from Nigeria". Dr. Stephen Adejoro, founder of the LIFA, was the speaker and the lecture was well-received, as many farms in the region are faced with problems of mycotoxin. 
The Livestock Industry Foundation for Africa is hopeful that collaboration with various international NGO will be of great benefit to farmers in Africa and it is willing to make their resources available in order to ensure that livestock industry in Africa is sustained.
