Hi Carlos
Nice Presentation. But I think that the ruminants especially the dairy cows are in trouble with mycotoxins FUM,T2,Don....In the last years we see in Germany 10-15 mg per head and day by this 3 mycotoxins in average.
The lifetime performance is actually very poor by 2.2 lactations and hardly 19000 kg milk in lifetime. And in the end of the day the liver of culling cows is adipose. I think the long time intake of mycotoxins is a problem in the field of ruminants.

kind regards

Hilmar

Dear Hilmar.

What you report about the problems with the cows in Germany seems to be serious. In the vision that I have about Germany, it seems that continuous monitoring is done. The situation in Brazil is a little different. In the University (LAMIC) we have only some 15,000 analysis of mycotoxins in diets of dairy cows especially for Fumonisins, Zearalenone and Deoxinynivalenol (DON). For diets of other species we have nearly 900,000 analysis.
I'm sure that the Veterinarians form Germany have already taking this possibility into account. I think that the diagnostic centers have already rated this. Although the diagnosis of bovine mycotoxicoses is very hard, constant monitoring helps to clarify and find the most appropriate alternatives.
This seems to be the only way to clarify if there is a relationship between continued ingestion of mycotoxins that you write, with the reported problems.
Best regards
Prof. Mallmann
