Tests which are necessary to evaluate a proper and wide-spectrum product for mycotoxin counteraction, comprise in vitro evaluation of binders in case adsorption is the claimed strategy, or, in case of biotransformation it is crucial to evaluate the toxicity of metabolization products. In vivo trials are indispensable to test the efficacy of the products in practical conditions. Biomin has been alw ...

Dear Mr. Ali Agus, Thank you for your interest in our article. Regarding your specific question I can tell you that we have within our samples 7 samples of palm kernel cake. The results of aflatoxin contamination within these range from below the limit of detection to 263 ppb. Other mycotoxins were also detected in these samples, namely DON and OTA, therefore synergistic effects are possible. ...

You probably recognise the scheme below. We'd ask you to take another good look at it. Are these problems often present in your herd? Do your cows seldom respond to veterinary therapies? Are the symptoms often associated with specific feedstuffs? If this is the case you are probably facing a mycotoxin problem. As supported by scientific literature, even the best management of agricultural strategi ...

Mycotoxins’ impact on swine fertilityThe pig industries main aim is to maximize the quantity of quality meat produced per sow per year while maintaining sow condition and health. In the breeding herd, the animal performance is directly related to the reproductive performance of the sows latter to be measured by the number of weaned piglets per sow per year. The objective of pig producers in breedi ...

Mycotoxins’ impact on swine performanceIn countries where livestock breeding, namely pigs, play an important role and where the animal potential is stretched to its limits, every factor disturbing the industry and the animal’s efficiency, such as mycotoxins, should be eliminated.MYCOTOXINSMycotoxins are naturally occurring secondary metabolites produced by certain moulds/fungi as a result of their ...

The primary objective of dairy farmers is to optimize milk production and remain profitable over the long term. This isn’t simple given the volatility of the feed markets, milk prices, changing consumer preferences, and other constraints. Dairymen work to keep their cows healthy and productive, which again, isn’t always easy. Naturally occurring toxic contaminants in feedstuffs, which can adversel ...

The term mycotoxin derives from the Greek words “mycos” and “toxikon” and refers to the secondary toxic substances that are produced by fungi under a wide variety of environmental conditions. There are approximately 100 000 species of fungi acknowledged so far however, only some of them are known to produce mycotoxins. The mycotoxin-producing fungi fall generally into two different groups: those t ...
