While the conditions that cause mycotoxins are unavoidable, you CAN minimize contamination to your animals.
The key is promoting a healthy microbiome. Achieving a healthy gut is a lot like hitting a moving target. There are a number of factors that damage gut integrity – especially in the heat of late summer and early fall months when performance often lags and seasonal diarrhea and E. coli thrive. Understanding that these enteric pathogens are caused by the combination of heat stress and mycotoxins is an essential first step to mitigating your risk.
