All feeds (raw material and finished products) are suitable media for growth of a wide variety of moulds, provided moisture and temperature requirements are met. The moulds in feed may cause problems in two ways (i) the moulds itself use the feed nutrients for their growth, and (ii) the moulds can produce mycotoxins in feed. Reduction in the metabolisable energy value (Bartov 1982), and reduced fa...

Aspergillus spp. are primarily storage fungi and are found virtually everywhere in the world that produce aflatoxins (B1, B2, G1 and G2) in feeds. Therefore, achieving complete inhibition of aflatoxin-producing fungus during storage of feed is of utmost importance. This study was conducted with the aim of establishing the efficacy of fumaric and citric acids as mould growth inhibitor in poultry feed.

It was very excellent.
Reducing moisture below 13% is very important to decrease feed safety cost.
