Successful Mycotoxin Management: Mission Possible

02 May 2017

Mycotoxins are toxic substances produced by naturally occurring metabolic processes in fungi. Mycotoxins can invade the seeds before the actual harvest whilst the crop is still on the field, or alternatively, mould growth can occur during storage at the feed mill or on the farm.

Mould can also grow during feed processing especially when the temperature and humidity in the feed is increased during mixing.
