Mycotoxins are secondary fungal metabolites that are harmful to animals and humans . Monogastric animals are considered to be more susceptible to the toxic effects of mycotoxins than ruminants as the rumen microbiota are capable to degrade some of those toxic molecules to less toxic metabolites [2–4]. In addition, intrinsic rumen fluid factors, such as bacterial and yeast ...

Mycotoxins are naturally occurring secondary fungal metabolites produced both pre- and post-harvest in crops and other feed and food commodities. Fusarium, Aspergillus, and Penicillium are the most abundant mycotoxin producing mould genera contaminating feed and feed raw materials . Fumonisins (FBs) are produced by Fusarium verticillioides, F. proliferatum, and other Fusarium spec ...

Toxigenic fungi may often colonize fodder crops and feed components. Under varied environmental conditions, they can produce toxic secondary metabolites, called mycotoxins. A recent study investigated the occurrence of mycotoxins in European feed samples and concluded that 82% of the samples were contaminated with mycotoxins , indicating that mycotoxins are omnipresent. All f ...

Group administration of veterinary drugs through feed and drinking water is frequently applied in the pig industry. Antimicrobials are often administered to pigs by mixing the feed with an oral powder or premix formulation [1–3]. The important role of group administration of antimicrobials in the selection of resistant bacteria is generally recognized . Concerns about antimicr ...

Worldwide, necrotic enteritis (NE) leads to important production losses, increased feed consumption and mortality rates, and a reduced welfare of broiler chickens [1–4]. The causative agent of NE is Clostridium perfringens, a Gram-positive spore forming bacterium which occurs ubiquitously in the environment, in feed and in the gastrointestinal tract of animals and human ...

Mycotoxins are toxic fungal metabolites that can contaminate a wide array of food and feed . Mycotoxin-producing fungi can be classified into either field or storage fungi. Field fungi, such as the Fusarium species, produce mycotoxins on the crops in the field, whereas storage fungi, such as the Aspergillus and Penicillium species, produce mycotoxins on the crops after harves ...
