How mycotoxins threaten bird health and performance
March 01, 2023
Mycotoxins are metabolites produced by moulds during times of stress or following an environmental stimulus. These moulds can grow on crops in the field or even on stored feedstuffs and feed materials post-harvest.
Read more about the impact of mycotoxins in birds in this article, published in International Poultry Production magazine.
It is a common misconception that, due to the anatomy of ruminants, mycotoxins may have a diminished effect on the health and production of cattle. The more we learn about mycotoxins, however, the more we realise that this is not the case.
Harvest analysis programs are being carried out across multiple regions globally, and the results of those analyses will provide feed and livestock producers with the most up-to-date and timely insights, empowering them as they make ingredient purchasing and animal nutrition decisions during the coming year.
As the livestock industry tries to limit its environmental footprint, increasing evidence points to the role that nutritional solutions can play in enhancing animal productivity and meeting such targets.
Drought conditions contributed to high levels of mycotoxins in grains, Alltech 2022 European Harvest Analysis reveals
December 09, 2022
Similar to 2021, widespread drought throughout Europe during the 2022 growing season has directly impacted the presence of moulds and mycotoxins in new crop grains and forages. Mycotoxins are produced by certain species of moulds and are a concern for livestock producers as they can influence feed quality and subsequent animal health and performance. The […]
The mycotoxin-related health impact of shifting to plant-based diets
December 06, 2022
On the Mycotoxin Matters podcast this month, we are delighted to be joined by Professor Chiara Dall’Asta to discuss a study that was recently published in the Journal of Exposure and Health, which assessed the mycotoxin related health impacts of shifting from meat-based diets to soy-based meat analogues.
