Mycotoxins are toxic substances produced by the growth of molds on plants during handling and storage. Fungi produce mycotoxins under a variety of conditions.
They enter the farm through feed or bedding. Some toxins are more common in warm or tropical climates, but most fungi and mycotoxins are found worldwide.
Mycotoxins affect animal health, animal productivity, and product quality. Mycotoxin control is essential for good margins and the profitability of your investment, as well as for a decent quality of goods. Mycotoxins can affect livestock in a number of ways:
1. Animals that eat less or refuse to eat
2. Living things absorb or metabolize less food than food
3. Hormones are changed by the endocrine and exocrine systems
Biologically, mycotoxins can cause kidney and liver toxicity in animals, wreak havoc on the central nervous system, alter fertility and reproductive cycles, and impair immunity to the point of almost no function.
First, you need to deal with animal mycotoxins to protect your investment and margins. A binder that removes mycotoxins from the animal's harmless system is your top priority therapy.
Lastly, use a nipple fungus inhibitor to prevent future infections. The conditions under which mold thrives in grain shed cannot be completely eliminated, but it is also possible to control it through the use of mold inhibitors.
