Prevention of mycotoxin contamination in the feed mill environment

The growth of moulds – and mycotoxin production – is typically encouraged by heat and the presence of moisture. However, mycotoxins can also be produced as a result of other factors that induce plant stress, such as drought. Climate and feed storage practices influence the range of moulds occurring in farm feed stocks, and with traditional tilling and crop rotation practices diminishing in many developed countries, mould contamination is persisting year-on-year, making the multiple mycotoxin threat very real.

Effective mycotoxin management is about seeing the whole challenge, from the farm to feed mill and from risk assessment to feed management. Thankfully help is at hand. The Alltech Mycotoxin Management Team provide a number of solutions to help you mitigate the threat you could face in your feed mill operation.

Alltech has developed a unique range of assessment services specifically designed with the challenges faced in the Feed Mill environment in mind. Based on HACCP principles (Hazard Analysis Critical Control Points), these specialist services are designed to identify areas of mycotoxin contamination risk and provide robust plans to minimise the threat to profitability of operations and animal health.

With new regulation, more demand, and a fast-growing industry, it is important to comply with regulation, run as efficiently as possible, and meet the quality demands of customers. To help ensure customers have the resources needed to keep up with an ever-changing industry, Alltech can offer a comprehensive feed mill assessment.

After the assessment is complete, each mill will get a confidential assessment report to help improve the operation of the mill.

Please contact your Alltech representative for more details or to arrange an assessment.
