contaminated feeds, mycotoxin contamination, feeding time, livestock management
Under ideal conditions, livestock should be fed grains and byproducts that are “clean” (i.e., free of fungi and/or mycotoxins). Although feeding clean grains and byproducts is ideal, there are times when clean grains are not available locally and farm finances do not allow for substitution of home-harvested grain with purchased grain. When grains or feeds test positive for mycotoxins, there are several approaches that can be taken to reduce the toxic effects to livestock.
