Mycotoxins are secondary metabolites produced by fungus or mold. Different mycotoxins have varying toxicities, modes of action and health effects on different species.
Find out which mycotoxin test is right for you. There are three main detection methods of mycotoxins that Alltech employs. Each detection method can quantify mycotoxins and has particular strengths.
Derek Wawack, Alltech On-Farm Support forage specialist, explains the key things he looks for when inspecting a silage pile, and the steps farmers can take to avoid costly issues.
Mycotoxins seldom occur in isolation. It is not uncommon to find multiple mycotoxins in finished feed and this allows for interactions between them, which leads to synergistic or additive effects in the ruminant animal.
Ruminant diets typically contain both concentrates and forages. This increases the risk of exposure to multiple mycotoxins.
