Introduction Conventional systems (battery cages) lead commercial egg production worldwide due to their reportedly efficient disease prevention processes (WHILEY; ROSS, 2015). However, shifts in egg consumption have drawn attention to potential animal welfare issues and generated demand for alternative laying systems with improved hen wellbeing. In this way, free-range systems could be an ideal choice for egg production and hen welfare (JONES at al., 2012); however, despite...

1. Introduction In Uganda, maize (Zea mays L.) is one of the most important crops in terms of production, consumption, and income generation. Because of its relevance, maize was one of the food security crops–and the only cereal–selected by the Ministry of Animal Industry and Fisheries of Uganda to implement a 5-year, multi-million USD agricultural intervention as part of the Development Strategy and Investment Plan (DSIP) during 2010–2015 (MAAIF, 2010). The...

1. Introduction Throughout the world, dietary starch and proteins are mainly obtained from cereals [1]. Other nutritional components of cereals include fiber, non-starch carbohydrates, lipids, minerals and vitamins [2]. Because of their high nutritive values, good health effects and their availability, cereals have been an essential source of human food for millions of years [3]. In the year 2022, estimated cereal production is 2799 million tons, with a high proportion of coarse...

It is not the Mycotoxins that replicate themselves or form themselves, but the various fungi or Mycelium which produce them. It is the fungi that require the conducive environment to produce mycotoxins and various fungi produce peculiar, or multiple Mycotoxins that range from Aflatoxin to Fuminoxin, DON and Zearalenone, etc. The conducive factors for these fungi must include appropriate substrate like corn, soy, groundnut, wheat, etc on which they require to grow. Water content in the...

1. Introduction Aflatoxin M1 (AFM1) is the main metabolite of Aflatoxin B1 (AFB1), which is one of the four most common variants of Aflatoxins (AFs) [1–6]. There is sufficient evidence for the carcinogenicity of AFM1 alone or mixed with AFB1 and Aflatoxin G1 (AFG1) [7], although of lower potency than AFB1 [8,9]. When cattle ingest food or feed contaminated by AFs, it is estimated that up to 6.2 % of the content of AFB1 is transformed into AFM1 and excreted in milk...
