Mycotoxin testing: A primer

Five aspects of mycotoxin detection every feed miller needs to know

In recent years, mycotoxins seem to be getting more attention than ever. The risks of mycotoxins, a series of toxic chemical byproducts produced by mold in feedstocks, and their impact on animal health are actively combated in the feed and grain industries: feed formulators are increasing their inclusion of additive technology to negate the negative effects of mycotoxins; testing equipment suppliers continue to invest in research and development to improve the process and its results; and feed mills are working to streamline their mycotoxin management programs.
