Mycotoxins: The latest challenge to aquaculture success
February 23, 2022
The continuous growth of the aquaculture industry will be crucial to providing food security for future generations. Therefore, our responsibility is to ensure that protein from aquaculture is of the highest quality available for human consumption.
In recent years, the increased awareness of mycotoxins globally has led to progress in many areas. Perhaps most fundamentally, the increased attention has driven more research into the impact of mycotoxins on animal performance, including the generation of meta-analyses for certain species.
Utilizing crop storage technology to reduce mycotoxin threat
September 07, 2021
However, the last few years have brought new mycotoxin control technologies that are underutilized in our grain storage bins. But, incorporating them at each step of the grain handling process can provide valuable assistance in controlling mycotoxins in animal feed.
The digitization of agriculture is being viewed more and more as one of the key ways the sector can meet some of the pressing challenges surrounding animal welfare, food safety and environmental sustainability.
Recognising the warning signs of mycotoxins in pigs
June 15, 2021
Pigs are particularly susceptible to the risk posed by mycotoxins. Ingestion of contaminated feed may impair a pig’s cellular and tissue integrity, leading to an unhealthy imbalance of different physiological systems. These cause organ malfunction that results in depressed pig performance, decreased immunity and reduced health status.
