Protect your flock investment with effective and targeted mycotoxin risk management

Mycotoxin Contamination

  • Mycotoxins are toxic metabolites produced by fungi which infect crops in the field and during storage
  • At least 90% of poultry feed is contaminated with mycotoxins that challenge poultry health and performance
  • Mycotoxins directly damage the bird’s gut and liver. Indirect effects on production can be seen through
    • Increased risk of vaccine failure
    • Increased risk of a disease outbreak
    • Decreased performance in a flock, specifically with growth and with egg production
  • By analyzing your mycotoxin risk, you can better understand which mitigation would work best to support both the flock health and feed cost

A precise and cost- effective Mycotoxin Risk Management program has consistent monitoring and risk assessment. This determines the most cost- effective mycotoxin mitigation technology needed. Checking raw materials and feed provides an early detection for mycotoxin contamination so you can plan accordingly.

The mycotoxin reduction method chosen should be based on which mycotoxins are present in your feed. This will ensure precise protection for your flocks and optimal cost for your investment. This integrated approach helps to protect birds against mycotoxins and their effects on your poultry production.
