Contaminated feeds contaminate profit
Mycotoxins produced during grain storage contribute to an increased pathogen load for your animals in the late summer months. The symptoms from eating contaminated feed can be varied and sub-clinical. Even low mycotoxin levels in feed can reduce performance and profits.
Reduces feed intake and absorption of nutrients
Reduces body weight gain
Impacts overall health status of pigs
Heat Stress + Mycotoxins = Pathogen Playground
The combination of heat stress and mycotoxins can result in significant impacts to gut health and integrity, namely the destruction of the intestinal lining. Once the damage occurs, pathogens proliferate and colonize, creating intestinal turmoil. This will result in performance losses and increases in diarrhea. Understanding the source of gut issues – whether they be from heat stress, mycotoxins or a combination of the two – will guide your specific solution. We’re here to help.
